For the 19th consecutive year, Weatherford ISD has upheld excellence in financial accountability by earning the top grade in the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST).
School FIRST was developed by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) in 1999 to ensure public schools effectively manage their financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes.
The FIRST ratings are calculated using 20 financial indicators that measure overall management of district resources, solvency and financial competency. Weatherford ISD passed all 20 indicators measured receiving a 96 out of a total 100 points earning a rating of A for Superior Performance.
Texas school districts and open-enrollment charters are required to prepare an annual financial management report detailing current and prior year for performance under School FIRST and hold a public hearing to present the district’s current rating. Ratings released in 2021 were based on financial data reported for the 2019-20 fiscal year.
