Northside ISD's financial house is in order. In fact, for the past 13 years, NISD has earned the highest financial rating awarded by the state according to David Rastellini, Deputy Superintendent for Business & Finance.
Northside ISD earned the highest rating of “Pass” under the state’s financial accountability rating system, called School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST).
The primary goal of School FIRST is to improve the management of school districts’ financial resources. The School FIRST rating is based upon analysis of staff and student data reported for the 2013- 14 school year, and budgetary and financial data for the 2014 fiscal year.
Northside held a public meeting to distribute a financial management report that explains the District’s performance under each of 7 indicators and the District’s rating.
