Moulton ISD receives Texas Honors Circle

 

Moulton ISD receives Texas Honors Circle Award from Comptroller for Cost-Efficient Spending and Academic Progress Excellence

Moulton ISD is a recipient of the Texas Comptroller’s 2014 Texas Honors Circle Award, which recognizes districts and campuses that achieve academic success through cost-effective operations. Award recipients achieve strong academic performance while spending relatively less compared to their fiscal peers. 

Essentially, this is getting “the biggest academic performance bang, for the financial buck.”  This reflects Moulton ISD being compared to other school districts that are most like us in both demographics and financial conditions for operating the district.  

FAST, mandated by the 2009 Texas Legislature, is an annual study that examines both academic performance and financial efficiency to identify school districts, charter operators and campuses that deliver high-quality education at relatively low costs. Combs created the Texas Honors Circle Award program to recognize districts and schools that receive high marks in the FAST analysis.

 “In these challenging times where schools are under pressure to do more with less, it is more important than ever to shine a spotlight on those that are achieving strong student performance with cost-effective spending,” Combs said. “Your efforts to help our state and local governments wisely manage educational spending while preparing students for success in college or the work force is crucial to the future of Texas.”   

The Texas Honors Circle program awards certificates based on FAST results. Districts receiving the Texas Honors Circle Award have achieved a Five-Star FAST rating.  To view FAST’s results and to see the list of all Texas Honors Circle award recipients, go to www.FASTexas.org.
