In addition to the Annual Financial Report produced by the independent audit firm that carefully reviews the district’s finances each fall for the prior fiscal year, the CAFR is produced by the district’s Director of Finance to provide a more in-depth, quantitative look at the operating success, financial health, and compliance of the district. It includes a balance sheet, a statement of changes in financial position, a statement of revenues and expense, and a comparison of budgeted to actual expenses and revenues. You can view the CAFR by selecting Financial Transparency Reports.
TEA evaluates each public school district and charter school in Texas, using numerous financial criteria to determine fiscal solvency and compliance to laws and regulations.

The District’s property tax rate is made up of the Maintenance & Operations tax rate and the Debt Service tax rate. As its name suggests, the Maintenance & Operations tax rate provides funds for the district’s maintenance and operating costs. These costs include, but are not limited to, salaries and supplies for student instruction and services and for upkeep on buildings and vehicles. The Debt Service tax rate exclusively funds the cost of debt for necessary improvements approved by the taxpayers. Details are available by selecting Financial Transparency Reports.
Property tax revenue includes tax collections received during the specified year, whether due for the current year or for prior years. The district has no sales tax revenue. To view additional information, select Financial Transparency Reports.
