Financial information

We have a long-standing commitment to careful management of taxpayer money to make every dollar count. This commitment is reflected in the Aaa and AA+ bond ratings assigned by Moody’s and Fitch, respectively. This places Garland among an elite group of Texas school districts.

Several departments work together to effectively manage district financial processes, including the Chief Financial OfficerBudgetFinancePurchasing and Tax Office departments.
