District 196 recognized for financial reporting

For the 12th year in a row, Independent School District 196 has earned the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials International. This year’s certificate recognizes excellence in the preparation and issuance of the district’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for fiscal year 2013.

The Certificate of Excellence is the highest recognition of school district financial operations offered by ASBO, a professional organization with more than 6,000 members. “(It) represents a significant achievement by the school district and finance department in meeting the highest standards of school financial reporting,” ASBO executive director John Musso wrote in a letter notifying the district of the recognition.
