The Texas Comptroller named the Harlingen Consolidated Independent School District a 2015 Platinum Leadership Circle Award recipient on May 8.
The Texas Comptroller Platinum Leadership Circle is a program which recognizes local governments across Texas that are striving to meet high financial transparency online by providing citizens with a clear, consistent picture of spending as well as sharing district information through the web.
The Comptroller’s Office designates different levels of transparency awards to government entities based on a score criteria sheet ranging from Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum. The Platinum designee helps highlight organizations that go above and beyond providing financial transparency in local government.
Additionally, HCISD continues also to present debt information on its long-term obligations and pledges to keep the public informed on any future bond issuances.
