The Government Finance Officers Association announced that the West Linn-Wilsonville School District has received GFOA's Award for Outstanding Achievement in Popular Annual Financial Reporting on March 26.
The award represents a significant achievement by the entity. In order to be eligible for the PAFR award, a government must also submit its comprehensive annual financial report to GFOA’s Certificate of Achievement for Excellent in Financial Reporting Program and receive the CAFR award for the current fiscal year. Each eligible report is reviewed by judges who evaluate the report based on the following categories: reader appeal, understandability, distribution methods, creativity and other elements.
The school district's business office worked with a local graduate student to create a report that met the award standards. The process informed district practices in putting together budget reports moving forward into the future.
