The Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced final financial accountability ratings for 2021- 2022. Created in 2001 by the 77 th  Texas Legislature, the Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) is designed to encourage public schools to improve their management of financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes. The FIRST ratings are calculated using twenty (20) financial indicators for school districts, such as administrative cost expenditures; the accuracy of a district’s financial information submitted to TEA; and any financial vulnerabilities or material weaknesses in internal controls as determined by an external auditor.   The Burton Independent School District is proud to have been rated an A – Superior Achievement for 2021-2022.

Please feel free to come visit Burton Independent School District and thank you in advance for
taking time to find out more about our schools, our professional staff, our exemplary students,
and our excellent academic programs. Burton Schools are a perfect place to get an education that will prepare your child for a bright future.
There is a tremendous amount of community support that goes into the success of our programs
in Burton ISD. We appreciate everyone who helps make a positive impact on our schools. All of us
working cooperatively make Burton ISD better together. So very proud to be a BURTON PANTHER!

Lots of great things going on this school year. Follow all of our activities on the Burton ISD
website @, check out the Burton ISD app, and keep up with the latest
happenings on the Burton ISD Facebook page and other social media venues. The pride of the Burton Panthers is embedded in all of us whether we are a student, an alumni, a community member, a staff member and employee, a parent, board member and/or a proud supporter and in many cases all of the above. We love our Panthers and like to think that the culture we are providing in educating our students is a reason why parents want their children to attend Burton ISD. We value our school district and always put students first. We are prepared for the 2022-2023 school year where Learning is Our Superpower as we are Building Our Future!!! Have a blessed day and HAPPY THANKSGIVING! GO BIG RED!
