District Comptroller Denise Huffman has earned SAISD the Association of School Business Officials International's (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting award for having met or exceeded the program's high standards for financial reporting and accountability.

Recognition through the COE program can help strengthen a district's presentation for bond issuance statements and promotes a high level of financial reporting.

Assistant Superintendent, Jeff Bright states, "we are extremely proud of Denise for her tireless efforts at making sure the district maintains the high standards of financial reporting that it takes to earn an award like this. She is very deserving of the recognition."
