Pearland Independent School District understands the importance in communicating the financial status of the District in an open, honest and transparent manner that is easily understandable and recognizable to all. We recognize that there are many stakeholders who share an interest in the efforts of the District, including students, parents, tax payers and other members of our community. As part of this continuing process, we have created this website to provide you with more direct access to this information.
Financial transparency and accountability are critical components in managing taxpayer resources. Pearland Independent School District is committed to serving the public by establishing an online resource of meaningful financial information that is both easily accessible and understandable. Our Financial Transparency data is from the Governmental Fund Statements in the District’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the most recently audited fiscal year ended June 30, 2018. Governmental Funds include the General Fund (the District’s primary operating fund), Special Revenues Funds (various federal, state, and local grants and sources), Debt Service Fund (payment of bond interest and principal), and Capital Projects Funds (expenditures from bond proceeds and other capital projects). The Pearland Independent School District’s Financial Transparency site meets the recommendations set forth by the Texas Comptroller’s Office Transparency Stars for Local Governments.
