School earns perfect FIRST score, again

Members of the Mount Vernon ISD school board heard a report that the district earned 90 of the possible 100 points for a top rating under the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas. FIRST measures financial management practices by school district.

This is the 15th year in a row for the district to earn a Superior rating. This year’s rating was based on financial data for the 2015-2016 school year. For more information from the November 13 school board meeting, see the November 16 edition of the Mount Vernon Optic-Herald.
