2018-2019 Financial Transparency
The long-standing motto of the District is "Navarro ISD ... Where Excellence in the standard." We achieve this by providing transparency through accounting, accounts payable, budget, business systems, cash management, purchasing and payroll. Financial transparency is an important standard at Navarro ISD.
Terminology used in various reports posted to the website.
d) Full-Time Equivalents (FTEs) - measure the extent to which a person (or responsibility) occupies a full-time position and are calculated for each staff member reported through PEIMS.
Benchmarks and Standards used to gauge our progress
Navarro ISD gauges the progress of the district through the utilization of various spreadsheets and graphs and through The Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) report that is issued by TEA annually.
Use of Historical analysis to track efforts to improve transparency:
The district's website includes various historical analysis used to track its efforts to improve transparency such as a five-year history of revenues and expenditures, a five year history of tax rates, and multiple years of the adopted budget and the annual financial reports. We have continued to expand the district's financial transparency website and will continue to add items that will assist in the district's goal of absolute transparency.
