Richardson ISD has always strived to achieve the highest standards of financial transparency. In 2009, the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts developed the Texas Comptroller Leadership Circle program. RISD earned the highest award level available for seven consecutive years (Platinum or Gold). The Comptroller’s Office discontinued the Leadership Circle program and replaced it with Transparency Stars.
The Transparency Stars program goes beyond the previous standards required by Leadership Circle to meet the ever-changing demands of the taxpayers. This program requires not only the posting of financial documents, but also summaries, visualizations, downloadable data and other relevant information.
