District 191 receives ASBO finance awards

Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 recently received two awards from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International for its financial reporting.

The District received the Meritorious Budget Award for the summary document it submitted for the 2024-25 fiscal year.

The ASBO stated: "The budget is an excellent document that includes a wealth of information in graphic and narrative form. It is user-friendly for the average taxpayer with an abundance of data to meet varied readers’ needs. Many components are suitable as stand-alone documents. The Review Team congratulates the District for their 2nd budget submission to the Meritorious Budget Award."

For the 36th consecutive year, the district also received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Award, which 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 transparency and high-quality financial reporting,” wrote James Rowan, executive director of ASBO.

“This award is about showing the District's willingness to be more transparent than what is required,” Director of Finance Tyler Dehne said. “The District goes above and beyond to provide more financial information to the public by producing the Annual Comprehensive Financial Report that meets ASBO's standards.”

The award is for the report for the fiscal year that ended on June 30, 2023. For more details, visit
