TISD Financial Services Receives High Marks

Tyler Independent School District is awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO).  The District provided a high-quality Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year end 2007. This honor is awarded for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the fiscal year end 2007 school system.

The Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program was designed by ASBO International to enable school business officials to achieve a high standard of financial reporting.  The award, the highest recognition for school district financial operations offered by ASBO, is only conferred to school systems that have met or exceeded the standards of the program.

"Participation in the Certificate of Excellence Program is such a rewarding experience," said Tosha Bjork, Director of Financial Services for Tyler ISD.  "Attaining this award brings a feeling of confidence and has continued our financial reporting credibility not only to the District but to the community as a whole."

This is the fifth consecutive year that Tyler ISD has received this honor.  By preparing and presenting a CAFR, Tyler ISD has validated the credibility of their school system's operations, measured the integrity and technical competence of the business staff, assisted in strengthening their presentations for bond issuance statements, and provided professional recognition.
