Brownsville ISD received a top rating of “Superior Achievement” from the Texas School Finance Accountability Rating System for fiscal year end 2014-2015. The Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (School FIRST) is the financial accountability system for Texas school districts developed by the Texas Education Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of the 76th Texas Legislature in 1999 and Senate Bill 218 of the 77th Legislature in 2001. The primary goal of School FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of a school district’s financial resources. The rating of a school district is based upon its performance on 15 indicators. Congratulations to the BISD Finance Department on this outstanding achievement.
