EPISD Financial Services Department earns top ratings from industry organizations

(EL PASO INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT -- Aug. 13, 2021) — EPISD’s Financial Services Department was recently recognized by two leading industry organizations for excellence and transparency in financial reporting.

The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) awarded EPISD with its Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for meeting its high standards for financial reporting and transparency for the 2020 fiscal year.

“The COE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting,” said David Lewis, executive director of ASBO International. “The Comprehensive Annual 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.”

Additionally, the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada recognized EPISD’s Financial Services Department with the Award of Financial Reporting Achievement. 

The award is presented to those government units whose annual financial reports are judged to adhere to program standards and represents the highest award in government financial reporting.

Congratulations, Financial Services Department!
