Frenship wins financial transparency gold award for 4th time

From Frenship I.S.D:

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts recently announced that Frenship Independent School District has received its fourth consecutive Leadership Circle Gold Award for financial transparency in 2013. Frenship ISD has received a Gold Award every year since this recognition was created in 2010.

Of the 1,032 school districts in Texas eligible to receive the Leadership Circle Award, Frenship ISD is one of only 86 Texas school districts that earned Gold awards for each of the first three years (2010, 2011, & 2012), and as of March 1, 2013, Frenship is one of only 16 districts that have earned the Gold Award in each of the first four years.

According to their website, the Leadership Circle award recognizes local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for online financial transparency by opening their books to the public; by providing clear, consistent pictures of spending; and by sharing information in a user-friendly format that helps taxpayers understand how their tax dollars are spent.

The Gold designation highlights entities that are setting the bar for transparency.
Frenship ISD will recognize Greg Cartwright, Chief Financial Officer, and the entire FISD Business Department for their tremendous work in achieving this high honor and receiving this award. The recognition will take place during the Frenship ISD Board of Trustees meeting scheduled for Monday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m. at the Casey Administration Building, 501 7th Street in Wolfforth.
