For the 29th consecutive year, Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 has received an award for financial reporting from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International. The Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting (COE) Award is considered to be the gold standard and the highest recognition for school district financial operations.
“This award represents a significant achievement and reflects your commitment to fiscal integrity and high quality financial reporting,” wrote John Musso, executive director of ASBO.
District 191 is one of only two districts in the state that have earned the award for 29 or more consecutive years. This outstanding accomplishment places the district in the top 20 percent of the 550 school districts across the country that participate in the COE program.
By preparing and presenting this report, District 191 validates the credibility and transparency of its financial operations and the integrity and technical competence of its business staff.
“This award recognizes our continuing commitment to meeting the highest standards of financial integrity,” said Superintendent Cindy Amoroso. “It is a prestigious achievement that demonstrates that we are using tax dollars wisely to support academic success for students.”
The award is for the report for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2016. For more details, visit www.asbointl.org.
