Schools FIRST Ratings
The Schools FIRST rating system was implemented in 1999 by the Texas Education
Agency in response to Senate Bill 875 of the 76th Texas Legislature. The primary goal
of Schools FIRST is to achieve quality performance in the management of school
districts' financial resources, a goal made more significant due to the complexity of
accounting associated with Texas' school finance system. The Schools FIRST
accountability rating system assigns one of four financial accountability ratings to Texas
school districts, with the highest being "Superior Achievement," followed by "Above-
Standard Achievement," "Standard Achievement," and "Substandard Achievement."
