The Arlington ISD continues to garner recognition for its financial reporting.

For the 42nd-consecutive year, the district was honored with a Certificate of Achievement from the Government Finance Officers Association. The award was for the district’s annual financial report for the year ending June 30, 2020. 

To receive that honor, the district published a comprehensive annual financial report that was easy to read and efficiently organized. The certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.

If that wasn’t enough, the district also received a Certificate of Excellence (COE) in Financial Reporting by School Systems from the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO). This marked the 32nd-consecutive year the district has received this award.      

The ASBO honor goes to school systems that have voluntarily submitted their comprehensive annual financial report for a panel review.

The award reflects the district’s transparency and high-quality financial reporting.

“The COE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting,” ASBO International Executive Director David Lewis said. “The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report informs stakeholders about the financial and economic state of the district, making it an important communications tool for building trust and engaging with the school community.”
