Local school district scores high on state study
By Scott Harvey
Austin – The Sam Rayburn ISD in Fannin County is among the four percent of Texas schools to receive a top rating in a new report comparing student performance to district spending.
Other area schools to receive the five-star honor include Anna, Canton, Garland and McKinney.
The Comptroller's Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST), released Wednesday, assigns a rating of from one to five to show a district's success in combining cost-effective spending with the achievement of measurable student academic progress. Five stars reflect the strongest relative progress combined with the lowest relative spending.
