School beats economy; Standard & Poor's upgrades district's bond rating
In the midst of an economic crisis in Oklahoma, Mustang Public Schools can celebrate a crowning financial achievement. Standard & Poor's, a nationally recognized statistical credit rating organization, upgraded the district's bond rating from AA- negative to "AA- rating with a stable outlook."

Mustang Public Schools presents a financial plan annually to Standard & Poor's. With the state's financial crisis looming on the horizon, Mustang Schools implemented an efficiency plan two years ago to reduce expenditures and build the fund balance, or carryover. Carryover is the money a district has at the end of the school year after all the bills are paid. It operates much like a personal savings account. The carryover, or fund balance, protects a district when the unforeseen happens and it functions as cash flow at the beginning of the fiscal year in July, allowing the district to begin operation for the upcoming school year well before state aid and other funding sources arrive.
