QCUSD Receives Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting

ASB Certificate of Excellence in financial reporting

Queen Creek Unified School District (QCUSD) has earned the certificate of excellence for its annual comprehensive financial report (ACFR) for the fiscal year ended 2022. The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) recognizes districts that have met the program’s high standards for financial reporting and transparency.

Participating in the certificate of excellence program demonstrates a commitment to financial transparency. Applicants submit their ACFR for review by a team of financial professionals who provide feedback to improve future documents. If the report meets the requirements of the program, it may receive the certificate of excellence. A district’s participation in the COE program can facilitate bond rating and continuing bond disclosure processes.

"We are proud to receive this recognition that shows the hard work of our district staff in financial planning, responsibility, and transparent communication," said QCUSD Chief Financial Officer Jessica Johnston.

“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,” said ASBO International Chief Operations Officer/Interim Executive Director Siobhan McMahon.

The certificate of excellence is proudly sponsored by ASBO International Strategic Partner American Fidelity.
