Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle Platinum Member

 For the 4th consecutive year Royse City ISD was recognized for its financial transparency. In previous years, RCISD had received the “GOLD” member designation, then the highest level of achievement possible.  However in 2014-15, RCISD was recognized with the new highest level of achievement for transparency by being awarded the “PLATINUM” member designation.  This distinction is awarded only to those school districts that demonstrate the highest level of commitment to providing taxpayers and stakeholders a transparent look at where their dollars go.  The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts launched the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program in December 2009 to recognize local governments across Texas that are striving to meet a high standard for financial transparency online.
