TRINITY — The Trinity school district is in solid financial shape based on the finding in its current audit.
At the regular meeting of the TISD Board of Trustees on Thursday, representatives from Axley & Rode discussed the 2023 audit, which showed TISD did an outstanding job on its finances and received an unmodified opinion.
However, the district could be facing what is called the ESSER effect; the $2.9 million the district received from the government during the COVID outbreak was only for two years, and the district will face a challenge replacing those funds.
The district is showing a net positive income of $2.6 million and has 6 months of operating capital on hand.
In a separate matter, the trustees approve a notice of election for May 6. Members Elizabeth King and Judy Bishop are up for re-election this year.
Also, the board recognized the Middle School’s UIL competitors. There were 71 students that attended a recent competition, and of those, 81 percent received medals, which amounted to 187 different awards. The team gained second place.
