State Comptroller’s Office Awards MISD score of 5.0

December 08, 2014

Five out of five stars have been awarded to MISD when compared to the district’s fiscal peers throughout the state.  The State Comptroller’s office bases this on the district’s very high academic progress at or above 82 % of all districts and very low spending compared to fiscal peers with $9,590 cost-adjusted spending per pupil.

Public education spending consumes a large and expanding share of state and local revenues. The 81st Texas Legislature directed the Comptroller to “identify school districts and campuses that use resource allocation practices that contribute to high academic achievement and cost-effective operations.”

In response, the Comptroller’s office created the Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST) to examine district and campus resource allocation – and the relationship between these allocations and student achievement.FAST looks at academic, financial and demographic data and identifies school districts and campuses that produce high academic achievement while maintaining cost-effective operations.

Some factors, such as geography and demographics, are beyond school districts’ control. The measures of academic growth take these into account. The FAST team produced methods to place Texas campuses and districts on a “level playing field” for comparisons of academic performance and spending.The FAST team worked with a wide range of experts and groups to develop these measures.   Moulton ISD is very proud of the staff working to make sure that every aspect of funding ensures the most cost effective use of resources for instructional outcomes for every MISD student!
