Proven Financial Management

LSC is fiscally responsible and maintains a AAA Bond Rating from Standard & Poor’s Rating Services – enabling LSC to borrow money at lower interest rates. The credit rating was increased eight times in the last 10 years. In addition:

  • LSC maintains administrative operating expenses under 12%, which is one of the lowest in Texas. (Source: Texas Association of Community Colleges)
  • The LSC tax rate is lower than it was 15 years ago. And the Board of Trustees has lowered the tax rate 6 of the last 10 years. (11.6 cents/100 vs. 10.81 cents/100).
  • LSC has received a Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting recognition each year since 2004.
  • LSC maintains a tax freeze for 65+ and/or disabled which means the actual dollar amount owed will never increase, even if the property value increases.
