Our 2023 Utopia volleyball season was a great success! Our Utopia Lady Buffs performed skillfully this season and were noticed by all. Meagan Cole was named Co-Offensive MVP for an amazing season hitting outside over 50 kills in district play. Not to mention her amazing digging and serving skills. Meagan was an instrumental, all-around player for our 2023 season. Kinsley Cox takes home the well-deserved Defensive MVP title for District 30-1A. Kinsley is an amazing all-around player as well and can anticipate a play with such ease. Not only does she get to what seems like an impossible dig, but she puts the ball right back to target for the kill. All-District Blocker was Hallie Moore, who has put up more than 40 blocks in district play. Hallie has been a big presence on our front row this season. Her blocking abilities alongside her front row attacks have been a key to our success. Lilly Moore, our setter with more assists than could be counted, has been placed on our district's 1st team. As setter, Lilly helped lead our team by playing smart volleyball. She has an impeccable talent for getting the ball up to our hitters even when out of system. She could turn a dig into an assist with such proficiency. Nicole Duke, even after what could have been a season ending injury prevailed and came back through true hard work and diligence to be named on All - District 30 - 1A 2nd team. Nicole not only leads on the court, but off it as well. She has been a constant encourager and cheerleader throughout our season. She has shown what true perseverance can achieve. Macee Rhodes, our little Mighty Mouse, was also named for 2nd team. She has a serve no one wants to be on the receiving end of. Earning her countless aces throughout this season. She has stepped up with building confidence, and with only being a freshman her future looks bright. Taya Bohannan is our bright shining light with a smile at every turn. All district honorable mention was awarded this year for her senior season. This team would not have been the same nor had the same success without her. We appreciate the true effort and dedication she put forth for her team. Our opposite hitter, Sabrina Nelson also named all district honorable mention, came through in many clutch plays throughout our season. She always seemed to surprise herself with her ability but was never a surprise to us. Her amazing hard work and dedication to better herself for her team did not go unnoticed. Riley McCutcheon also brings home all district honorable mention proving our entire team was noticed by our district this season as a true opponent. Riley is our comedian on the court always making light of even the hardest situations. She has been a true team player always playing where needed most and serving aces at game point. Academic All-District include: Lilly Moore Sabrina Nelson Meagan Cole Macee Rhodes Hallie Moore Kinsley Cox Taya Bohannan Nicole Duke All these beautiful, young ladies put forth great skill and effort this season on and off the court, and we congratulate them on all their hard-earned achievements. We could not be prouder of their dedication and teamwork. Way to go Lady Buffs!

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) today released final financial accountability ratings for Texas public school systems. Utopia ISD received an ‘A’ or Superior Achievement rating for 2022-2023, exemplifying high-quality financial management practices. Established in 2001 by the 77th Texas Legislature, the School Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas (FIRST) encourages school systems to improve financial resources to provide the maximum allocation possible for direct instructional purposes. Ratings for 2022-2023 are based on annual financial reports provided to TEA by school systems for the 2022 fiscal year. These reports are subsequently reviewed by the agency and a rating is assigned. School systems are assigned one of four possible letter grades (A, B, C, or F) under financial accountability ratings, as well as a coinciding financial management rating (Superior Achievement, Above Standard Achievement, Meets Standard Achievement, or Substandard Achievement). FIRST ratings are calculated using 20 financial indicators for both traditional school districts and public charter schools, such as administrative cost expenditures; the accuracy of a district or charter school’s financial information submitted to TEA; and any financial vulnerabilities or material weaknesses in internal controls as determined by an external auditor.   There are critical indicators that result in an automatic F or Substandard Achievement rating should a school system fail in that specific category – regardless of their overall score. Final FIRST ratings for charter schools operated by a public institution of higher education (IHE) are assigned separately. IHEs are assigned either a Pass or Fail rating based on seven different indicators. For 2022-2023, six out of seven charter schools operated by a public institution of higher education received a final FIRST rating of Pass. All Texas public school systems are required to share their financial accountability ratings with parents and taxpayers and host a public discussion or hearing regarding their financial report. To review the final 2022-2023 FIRST ratings for all school systems (plus view final FIRST ratings from previous years), visit the TEA School FIRST web page for school districts or Charter FIRST web page for charter schools.
