Financial Transparency

Bastrop ISD values transparency. The Business & Finance Department is continuing its effort to provide transparent and accountable financial information to our community. We strive to present financial reports and relevant information in a format that is easily accessible and understandable. This dedicated webpage is part of our effort to provide the community with more direct access.
The data provided here is in accordance with the Texas Comptroller of Public Account's Transparency Star Program criteria for local governments. This program is designed to recognize entities for going above and beyond their transparency efforts and who open their books to the public, who provide clear, consistent pictures of spending, and who share information in a user-friendly format.

The budget reflects the allocation  of revenues and expenditures to support 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. The Business & Finance Department performs budget reviews during the year in which budget requirements are re-evaluated, and revisions are recommended to the Board. Therefore, the budget amendments are not included in the original budget documents.
