Honoring the District’s commitment and efforts in utilizing best practices in the acquisition of goods and services, the Round Rock ISD Purchasing Department has been recognized by the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) as the recipient of the Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations.
