DeSoto ISD earns Financial GOLD
DESOTO — The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online.
They are spotlighting those local governments that are:
· opening their books to the public
· providing clear, consistent pictures of spending
· sharing information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information.
Congratulations to DeSoto Independent Sschool District for implementing financial transparency and joining the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle Award winners.
DeSoto ISD has earned a GOLD Leadership Circle Award by scoring 15 of 15 possible points on the ratings criteria.
"Gold" highlights those entities setting the bar with their transparency efforts.
DeSoto ISD provides constituents with access to annual budgets, monthly check registries and financial reports in easy to read, comprehensive formats.
The district will be adding the GOLD Leadership Circle Award to the district Web site as well.
