  • Superior Achievement Press Release

    For Immediate release, November 16, 2023
    Campbell Independent School District earns “Superior Achievement” Again
    The Campbell Independent School has earned another "Superior Achievement'' rating from the Texas
    Education Agency (TEA). The state's school financial accountability rating system, known as the School
    Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST), ensures that Texas public schools are held
    accountable for the quality of their financial management practices and that they improve those
    practices. The system is designed to encourage Texas public schools to better manage their financial
    resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes.
    The state has continued to recognize that our district is on solid footing. In the past 21 years, they have confirmed this by awarding the district their highest rating on the FIRST
    Report. This shows our long
    standing commitment to strong financial standards, which begins with the tone set by our community
    and Board of Trustees. Our focus on financial responsibility allows us take care of our kids. In the past year, we have prudently used our savings on numerous improvements, such as capital projects to
    replace the old roof, re-tile floors in the cafeteria & halls, resurface the gym floors, invest in a proper
    playground and get new technology in the hands of students and teachers. The Superintendent, Dr.
    Denise Morgan, along with all the staff, continue to ensure the safety and education of our students and the success of our school.
    TEA annually evaluates school districts using a series of indicators ranging from the findings of external
    auditors to cash-on hand, debt and staffing levels. Campbell ISD received all 100 points possible.
    Detailed criteria used for the FIRST accountability rating is available online at
    A detailed summary of the FIRST report was presented in the public hearing held today before the
    regularly scheduled Campbell Independent School District’s Board of Trustees meeting.
    Campbell Independent School District is located in Northeast Texas in Campbell, TX
