Bastrop ISD has received its final financial accountability rating of “Superior Achievement” under the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) for 2015-2016. FIRST is designed to encourage public schools to manage better their financial resources so that the maximum allocation is directed for instructional purposes. Bastrop ISD spends 62% of its $85.8 million budget on instruction and has an administration cost ratio of 5%, less than half of the state’s recommended 11.05%.
