Willis ISD Earns Superior Achievement Rating on Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas

The system was designed in 1999 by the Texas Education Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of the 76th Texas Legislature to encourage public schools to better manage their financial resources and provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes. The 2015-2016 ratings are based on annual financial reports provided to TEA by districts and charters from the 2015 fiscal year.

“The business and finance departments, under Tammy’s leadership, work hard to ensure Willis ISD remains a good steward of our community’s tax dollars and is actively securing a solid financial future for our students and families,” said Tim Harkrider, Superintendent.” “I am extremely proud of Willis ISD’s continued excellence in this area.”

The FIRST ratings are based on 15 financial indicators, including administrative cost expenditures; the accuracy of a district or charter’s financial information submitted to TEA; and any financial vulnerabilities or material weaknesses in internal controls as determined by an external auditor.
