MIDLOTHIAN — Texas Comptroller Glenn Hegar announced Midlothian Independent School District is the latest local government entity to achieve specific transparency goals through the Comptroller’s Transparency Stars program. Midlothian ISD received a star in the area of Traditional Finances, which recognizes entities for their outstanding efforts in making their spending and revenue information available.

Transparency Stars recognizes local government entities that provide easy online access to important financial data.

“By providing meaningful financial data in addition to visual tools and analysis of its revenues and expenditures, Midlothian Independent School District has shown a true commitment to Texas taxpayers. This effort achieves the goals set by my office’s Transparency Stars program,” Hegar said. “I am pleased to award Midlothian ISD a star for its accomplishments.”

The Comptroller’s office launched the Transparency Stars program in March to recognize cities, counties and school districts making important strides to greater government transparency.

After receiving an initial star for Traditional Finances, remaining stars may be awarded in any order. For more information on the program, including specific guidelines and information on how to apply, visit the Comptroller’s Transparency Stars website.

Midlothian Independent School District serves more than 8,500 students in grades Pre-K-12. Located just 30 miles south of Dallas and Fort Worth, MISD is frequently cited by residents as the key reason for moving to Midlothian. Students attend one of 11 campuses — seven elementary schools, two middle schools, and two high schools.

The vision of Midlothian ISD is to inspire excellence today to change the world tomorrow. For more information, contact the district at info@misd.gs or 972.775.8296.
