Local School System Earns Gold Medal
The Comal County Independent School District, or Comal ISD, has been providing education for local families for over 50 years. Over the past several decades, New Braunfels' schools have earned several awards, recognized on both state and federal levels for excellence. A few of Comal ISD's acheivements include:
- the Presidential Award for Excellence
- Gold Performance Awards from the TEA
- and Superior Acheivement Rating from the FIRST Management Report
Recently, our local education system has been presented with another merit:
Comal ISD has joined ranks with Austin, San Antonio, Round Rock and Pflugerville ISD as a few of the only school districts in the area that are gold medal recipients of the Texas Comptroller’s Leadership Circle.
The Leadership Circle spotlights local governments that are opening their books to the public, providing clear, consistent pictures of spending, and sharing information in a user-friendly format.
Comal ISD received the highest possible award and scored 19 out of 20 points for its fiscal transparency. (KGNB)
