2010–2011 School FIRST Ratings for Charter Schools

This page provides a link to each open-enrollment charter school's 2010–2011 School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) rating, which is based on school year 2009–2010 charter school data. The purpose of School FIRST is to ensure that charter schools are held accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and that they improve those practices. 

Each school received one of three possible ratings:

  • Standard Achievement
  • Substandard Achievement
  • Suspended—Data Quality 

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) determined each charter school's rating based on the financial accountability indicators that applied for school year 2009–2010 data.

The source of the data that the TEA analyzed was each school's 2009–2010 annual financial and compliance report (often referred to as the annual financial audit), which is prepared by an independent certified public accounting firm.

The TEA used the 2010–2011 School FIRST ratings in assigning 2011–2012 accreditation statuses to charter schools.
