PROMISE COMMUNITY SCHOOL DISTRICT NAMED TEXAS HONORS CIRCLE AWARD RECIPIENT
District takes home award for success through cost-effective operations for third consecutive year
Promise Community School District is a recipient of the Texas Comptroller’s 2012 Texas Honors Circle Award, which recognizes schools and districts that are achieving academic success through cost-effective operations. Award recipients achieve strong academic performance while spending relatively little compared to their peers. This is the third consecutive year Promise Community School District, which is operated by Neighborhood Centers, has received this distinction.
Texas Comptroller Susan Combs has announced that 45 Texas school districts and 329 school campuses received the Texas Honors Circle Award for high rankings received in the 2012 Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST).
FAST, mandated by the 2009 Texas Legislature, is an annual study that examines both academic performance and financial efficiency to identify school districts, charter operators and campuses that deliver high-quality education at relatively low costs. Combs created the Texas Honors Circle Award program to recognize districts and schools that receive high marks in the FAST analysis.
