Mumford ISD, a small school district in Robertson County, saves money in innovative ways and maintains no long-term debt. Mumford’s minimal administration allows for proportionately more spending on teachers, lower overall costs, and the freedom of teachers to teach. Maintaining a surplus allows Mumford to have no debt and a large fund balance. A cost-conscious attitude has led to innovative solutions, like the superintendent serving as contractor, to save money for the district. Mumford’s minimal administration and cost-conscious policies are worth the consideration of school districts throughout Texas.
