Katy ISD has been named a Five-Star District in the Texas Comptroller’s Financial Allocation Study for Texas (FAST). Katy ISD is one of only 46 districts in Texas to receive the top rating, and one of 23 districts in the state that received this rank last year as well.
Released from the office of Susan Combs, Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts, the FAST rating system identifies districts and schools that have high academic achievement and cost-effective operations. The FAST report was commissioned by the Texas Legislature in 2009 as a result of HB3 to “develop a method to compare school districts on a level playing field.” For more information about FAST and to read how districts are scored, visit fastexas.org.
Katy ISD is a TEA Recognized district serving more than 62,000 students. Covering 181 square miles west of downtown Houston, Katy ISD is comprised of 53 campuses, and with more than 8,000 employees is one of the largest employers in the West Houston area.
