October 19, 2018 - Killeen ISD has earned a perfect score of 100 from the Texas Education Agency for the school district's careful and efficient use of the taxpayer's money, a preliminary report from the state agency shows. 

The report will be made at the Tuesday, Oct. 23, workshop meeting of the Killeen ISD Board of Trustees.  The school board meets in public session at 6 p.m. 

The preliminary report shows KISD earned a "Superior" rating and a perfect score of 100 out of 100 possible points from the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST).  The state system "ensures that Texas public schools are held accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and that they improve those practices.  The system is designed to encourage Texas public schools to better manage their financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes," according to the Texas Education Agency. 

"As a public education system, we have a responsibility to the public to make sure that we use every dollar wisely and in the most effective way to help children learn.  That's our job every day and we take it very seriously," Killeen ISD Superintendent John Craft said.  "We are proud to earn a perfect score from the state of Texas for being accountable to our taxpayers, and we will continue that commitment in everything we do."
