BELTON, TX — Belton ISD has earned a perfect score and "Superior Achievement" rating on the annual state fiscal accountability review for the ninth year in a row.

The rating was announced during the Board of Trustees meeting Monday.

The report is issued by the Texas Education Agency and is based on data from the 2018-2019 school year. It evaluates school districts on 14 indicators, including the findings of external auditors, cash-on hand, debt and staffing levels.

School districts are then graded based on a 100-point scale. Belton ISD received all 100 points possible.

“This is a recognition we, as a Board, are really proud of,” said Board President Suzanne M. McDonald. “Local property owners invest in Belton ISD with their tax dollars, and it feels good to know that the district is providing a great education for students at a great value for taxpayers.”
