The Orange School District Wins
Association of School Business Officials International's
Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program
The City of Orange Township Public School District has been awarded the Association of School Business Officials International’s (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting Program (COE) for excellence in the preparation and issuance of the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 financial reports for fiscal year ended June 30, 2009 and 2010 respectively. 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. This is the second consecutive year that the Orange Public School District has applied for and won the COE award.
Orange Public School District’s preparation and presentation of a high-quality Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) validates the credibility of the school system’s operations, measures the integrity and technical competence of the business staff, assists in strengthening the presentations for bond issuance statements, and provides professional recognition.
“This recognition is a testament to our Business Office staff for the fine work they do to uphold the stringent financial integrity of our school district,” said Ronald C. Lee, Superintendent of Schools for the Orange Public School District. “I commend our Business Administrator, Mr. Adekunle James for his oversight of our financial systems and congratulate him and his staff for bringing this honor to our district.”
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.
