Broward County School Board Recognized for Outstanding Financial Reporting

Certificate of Excellence logoThe Broward County School Board is being recognized by the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) with its Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for the 2021 fiscal year. The award recognizes school districts that have met the program’s high standards for financial reporting and transparency.

As part of the award process, school districts submit their Annual Comprehensive Financial Report to ASBO for review by a team of financial professionals who provide feedback to improve future reporting. In its review of Broward County Public Schools, the team commended the District for its efforts and noted the District’s report was of high quality.

“The Certificate of Excellence’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting,” said ASBO International Executive Director David Lewis. “The Annual Comprehensive 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.”
