San Angelo ISD is committed to the belief and practice of financial transparency in government. The information provided below is in accordance with the Texas Comptroller’s Transparency Star Program criteria for local governments. The Transparency Stars program recognizes local government entities that provide easy online access to important financial data. San Angelo ISD has received stars in the areas of Traditional Finances and Debt Obligations for their outstanding efforts in making their spending, revenue, and debt information available.

The budget reflects the allocation of revenues and expenditures to support the educational programs and services. Each school district in Texas is required by law to prepare annually a budget for the General Fund, the Debt Service Fund, and the Food Service Program. The following budget documents are the original budgets adopted by the Board of Trustees.
As required by the legislature, the district must post the following statement:
THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES APPROVED A PROPOSED MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS TAX RATE OF $.8546 AND AN INTEREST AND SINKING TAX RATE OF $.11741 FOR PUBLIC CONSIDERATION FOR THE 2022-23 SCHOOL FISCAL YEAR. THIS PROPOSEDTAX RATE WILL RAISE MORE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS THAN LAST YEAR’S TAX RATE.
THE TAX RATE WILL EFFECTIVELY BE RAISED BY 8.3 PERCENT AND WILL RAISE TAXES FOR MAINTENANCE AND OPERATIONS ON A $100,000 HOME BY APPROXIMATELY $47.00
What the legislature has failed to inform the public is that as your local tax collections increase, the state reduces the amount of funds sent to the district – shifting the responsibility of funding education from the state to the local taxpayers. San Angelo ISD does not benefit from increased local tax collections.
Prior Year Budgets
The Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (Schools FIRST) is administered by the Texas Education Agency and calculated on information submitted to TEA via the district's Public Education Information Management System (PEIMS) submission each year. 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.” For the 20th year in a row, the San Angelo Independent School District has earned a rating of “Superior Achievement” with a perfect score of 100 on the rating criteria.
The Texas Education Code requires an annual audit of the district's financial statements. The Board of Trustees selected Eide Bailly, CPA, LLP, a firm of licensed certified public accountants to audit this year's financial statements. Download full reports for the past 5 years below.
