PSJA ISD awarded by texas comptroller’s office for financial transparency
Pharr-San Juan-Alamo ISD is the recipient of a Gold Leadership Circle Award from the Texas Comptroller’s Office. This award was given for successfully implementing financial transparency. The Comptroller Leadership Circle encourages and applauds local governments across Texas that have focused on giving taxpayers a transparent look at local expenditures.
The Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online. They spotlight local governments that: open their books to the public; provide clear, consistent pictures of spending; and share information in a user-friendly format that lets taxpayers easily drill down for more information.
The Leadership Circle designees receive a certificate reflecting their Circle Award level: Gold, Silver or Bronze. PSJA ISD received the “Gold” standard, which is the highest standard, and highlights those entities that are setting the bar with their transparency efforts.
As per the Texas Comptrollers Office, financial transparency is an ongoing goal for any government entity and they applaud governments across the state that are stepping up efforts to give taxpayers a transparent look at where their money goes.
With this designation, PSJA ISD will receive an official certificate and can now use the gold insignia indicating the award. The district will also be listed in the Texas Transparency website.
