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.
Texas Leadership Circle Gold Award
For the 3rd consecutive year, in 2012-13 Greenville ISD was awarded the “GOLD” member designation, the highest rating awarded, which demonstrates GISD’s continued efforts to provide taxpayers a transparent look at where their dollars go.
