Board meeting tonight – 6pm

Here’s a link to the full Agenda Packet.

Items of interest:

Looks like the wagons are circling on this budget issue. Do we even have to mention that the State Comptroller’s Office gives out AWARDS for financial transparency? Notice from the presentation that Chancellor Bruce Leslie is only going for the GOLD. Why not the Platinum? Here is the “self-scoring” sheet from the Texas Comptroller. And the Texas Transparency Initiative website.

And unless we’ve gone completely blind, there is no “raw format budget” available for download on the District’s site. Only these pdfs. The minor criteria for this award clearly states:

Raw format budget – A budget posted in an
Excel spreadsheet, HTML, XML, XBRL, or other
machine-readable format. PDF is not a machinereadable
format. This increases the ease with which a
local government’s budget may be downloaded and
analyzed by taxpayers or other users.
