SAISD Earns Financial Certificate of Excellence

September 14, 2007

San Angelo Independent School District has earned the Association of School Business Officials International's (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program (COE) for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year 2006.

The Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program was designed by ASBO International to enable school business officials to achieve a high standard of financial reporting. The award, the highest recognition for school district financial operations offered by ASBO, is only conferred to school systems that have met or exceeded the ASBO. Additionally, it is only conferred to school systems that have met or exceeded the standards of the program.

By preparing and presenting a CAFR, San Angelo Independent School District validated the credibility of their school system's operations, measured the integrity and technical competence of the business staff, assisted in strengthening their presentations for bond issuance statements, and provided professional recognition.

"Attaining this award brings a feeling of confidence and increases our financial reporting credibility not only to the district but to the community as a whole. There is an entire staff of employees who are committed to excellence and strive to do the best we can for our community." Jeff Bright, Assistant Superintendent, Business & Support Services, San Angelo Independent School District
