HPISD earns Certificate of Excellence for Financial Reporting


The Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International has awarded Highland Park Independent School District its Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for having met or exceeded the program's high standards for financial reporting and accountability. The district was recognized for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ending 2014.

"This is HPISD's 19th consecutive year to receive the award," Catherine Carvajal, ASBO Recognitions Program Coordinator said. "It is a true reflection of the district's commitment to fiscal integrity." 

As the only award program specifically designed for school district financial reporting, the Certificate of Excellence represents a significant achievement and reflects a high level of commitment to fiscal integrity. To receive the award, the district must satisfy specific guidelines for effective, high-quality financial reporting recognized by school business officials.


"The School Board and district staff consider responsible financial management to be of the utmost importance, and this award confirms our commitment to that goal," said HPISD Assistant Superintendent for Business Services Tim Turner.

ASBO International, founded in 1910, is a professional organization of 5,000 members that provides programs and services to promote the highest standards of school business management practices, professional growth, and the effective use of education resources.
