The board received the annual district audit for the fiscal year ending June 30 from Cole & Reed. The district received an unqualified opinion for the 10th year in a row. District revenues were about $455 million, and expenses were about $376 million.

The board unanimously rejected a request for a charter school from Lighthouse of Hope Academy. The school would have served students in the 73114 ZIP code. It was going to be on property owned by Britton Christian Church. The district's attorney Tammy Carter said the planned curriculum was inadequate and inappropriate for a public school.
