Crandall ISD Purchasing Department earns prestigious Award of Merit 

Crandall, TX – Crandall Independent School District is proud to be recognized by The Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with a 2024 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.  

Each year, volunteers with the TASBO Purchasing & Supply Management Research Committee evaluate the award criteria to ensure it represents the latest best practices. They then review new and recertification applications. For 2024, only 77 recipients met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award. With 1,200 School Districts in the State of Texas, this is truly a prestigious award.   

“We’re proud of the work our honorees do to streamline school purchasing operations, comply with regulations, and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” said Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO Executive Director. “These organizations have not only demonstrated their professional acumen by documenting their districts’ policies and procedures but have also shared these best practices with colleagues throughout Texas.” 

CISD Director of Purchasing Adriana Espinosa, Chief Financial Officer Dianna Casper, and the Business Office team were recognized by the CISD Board of Trustees at the March board meeting.
