Dalhart ISD receives a SUPERIOR ACHIEVEMENT Rating for school year 2016-17

DALHART ISD Earns State’s Highest Fiscal Accountability Rating

Dalhart Independent School District officials announced that the district received a rating of “Superior Achievement” under Texas’ School FIRST financial accountability rating system. The “Superior Achievement” rating is the state’s highest, demonstrating the quality of Dalhart ISD’s financial management and reporting system.

This is the 15th year of School FIRST (Financial Accountability Rating System of Texas), a 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 amends under House Bill 5. 83rd Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2013. The primary goal of School FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of school districts’ financial resources, a goal made more significant due to the complexity of accounting associated with Texas’ school finance system.

“We are very pleased with Dalhart ISD’s School FIRST rating,” said Dalhart ISD Superintendent John Massey. “This rating shows that Dalhart’s schools are accountable not only for student learning, but also for achieving these results cost-effectively and efficiently.”

The Texas Education Agency assigned one of four financial accountability ratings to Texas school districts, with the highest being “Superior Achievement”, followed by “Above-Standard Achievement”, “Standard Achievement”, and “Substandard Achievement”. Dalhart ISD has achieved the highest rating for 2015-2016 and four prior years.
