Greenville ISD Wins Distinguished Budget Presentation Award
The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) established the Distinguished Budget Presentation Awards Program in 1984 to encourage and assist state and local governments to prepare budget documents of the very highest quality that reflect both the guidelines established by the National Advisory Council on State and Local Budgeting and the GFOA’s best practices on budgeting and then to recognize individual governments that succeed in achieving that goal. Greenville ISD was recently named a recipient of this award for its' 2012-2013 annual budget for the 2nd consecutive year.

Announcing the First Leadership Circle Platinum Awards
The Texas Comptroller announced as of March 20, 2014, that Greenville ISD is among the initial 36 school districts, cities and other local government entities around the state to have earned the Platinum Leadership Circle award for financial transparency. This is the first time this extended level of recognition for clarity and openness of finances has been available. Greenville ISD is one of 12 school districts in the state earning the distinction. GISD has previously earned the Gold Leadership Circle award when it was the top available designation.
The new Platinum award recognizes local governments that have exceeded the requirements for the previous highest level of disclosure, the Gold Award. It includes posting of budgets, financial reports and check registers online. The Platinum Award spotlights entities meeting the Gold standard that also:
- Post detailed summary information on their websites about current bonded debt and repayment;
- Link to the Comptroller's governmental transparency website; and
- Pledge to post information online about proposed bond packages and existing debt. Local officials must provide the Comptroller's office with a link to this information no later than one business day after notice of bond elections has been made public.
Greenville ISD has earned the Gold Leadership Circle Award
The Gold Leadership Circle Award is the highest rating awarded by the Comptroller and is based on the accessibility of financial information presented on the District's website to make GISD "transparent" to its taxpayers. The Comptroller of Public Accounts created the Leadership Circle program to recognize local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparence online.
For 3rd year, Greenville ISD was awarded the “GOLD” member designation, the highest rating awarded.
