From the RPT Chairman’s 6 Month Update, “Comptroller Susan Combs provided a keynote speech about her new rating system for school districts called FAST (Financial Allocation Study for Texas). This study examines how our school districts and campuses spend their money, and how this spending translates into student achievement. “
I was playing around with this incredible website. It breaks down Teacher Qualifications, Spending, Demographics and more…from each school district in Texas. You just select your District…and Poof…there’s all the data you could ask for. Broken down into neatly categorized sections.
If anyone is active in the Education Initiative, this is a great resource.
