ASBO International鈥檚 COE recognizes districts that have met the program鈥檚 high financial reporting and transparency standards. The school district earned the Certificate of Excellence for its Annual Comprehensive Financial Report (ACFR) for the fiscal year ended 2023.

鈥淲e are honored to receive this prestigious award, which reflects our unwavering commitment to financial transparency and accountability,鈥 said Chief Administrative Officer, Kim Smith. 鈥淎t Tri County Tech, integrity and transparency are at the core of everything we do, including financial reporting.鈥

School districts demonstrate their commitment to financial transparency by participating in the COE program. Applicants submit their ACFR for review by a team of financial professionals who provide feedback to improve future documents. The report may receive the Certificate of Excellence if it meets the program’s requirements. A district鈥檚 participation in the COE program can facilitate bond rating and continuing bond disclosure processes.

Districts that receive the COE Award have demonstrated their ability to do that at the highest level.鈥
