Robbinsdale Area Schools recently earned the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO).
The national award specifically recognized the district for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the Fiscal Year 2020, which according to the ASBO met the organization’s “standards for financial reporting and transparency.”
“We take pride in being transparent and informative with our community about the financial and economic state of the school district,” said Ukee Dozier, the District’s executive director of finance. “Being recognized for that work is validating.”
The ASBO’s certificate of excellence program allows school districts to submit its financial report for review by a team of finance professionals who in turn provide feedback to improve future documents. If the report meets the program requirements, it may receive the certificate of excellence.
ASBO is a nonprofit organization that, through its members and affiliates, represents approximately 30,000 school business professionals worldwide.
