Excellence in Financial Reporting

The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) is pleased to award Queen Creek Unified School District No. 95 with the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting (COE). ASBO International’s COE recognizes districts that have met the program’s high standards for financial reporting and accountability. The school district earned the Certificate of Excellence for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for the fiscal year ended in 2018. 

“The COE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting, specifically through a district’s CAFR,” ASBO International Director of Recognition Programs Molly Barrie says. “The CAFR informs parents and other 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.”

By participating in the COE program, school districts demonstrate their commitment to financial transparency. Applicants submit their CAFR for review by a team of professional auditors, who provide feedback to improve future documents. If the CAFR meets the requirements of the program, the document may receive the Certificate of Excellence. A district’s participation in the COE program can facilitate bond rating and continuing bond disclosure processes.

The COE is proudly sponsored by ASBO International Strategic Partner American Fidelity.

Supplementary Materials Adoption - Foundations in Personal Finance: High School Edition

Foundations in Personal Finance: High School Edition, by Dave Ramsey, is up for supplementary materials adoption. Per regulation IJJR, we place textbooks and supplementary books for common schools recommended by textbook selection committees on display in the district office for a period of at least sixty (60) days prior to the meeting at which the board will consider its adoption.

Foundations in Personal Finances: High School Edition goes beyond practical money basics, equipping educators with resources to help students create new financial habits and transform the way they approach money altogether. Foundations resources empower students to save, budget, avoid debt, spend wisely, and invest. Students learn to build confidence in their own financial decision-making. Foundations students get inspiration from real-life examples, and can apply the concepts taught to form good money habits early in life, changing their lives forever. 

This book will be on display from Thursday, May 16 through Tuesday, July 16, 2019. Please contact Erika Copeland with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Supplementary Materials Adoption

Pre-Calculus - Graphical, Numerical, Algebraic 10th edition; copyright 2019; Demana, Waits, Foley, Kennedy, Bock, book, is up for supplementary materials adoption. Per Regulation IJJR, textbooks and supplementary books for common schools recommended by textbook selection committees will be on display in the district office for a period of at least sixty (60) days prior to the meeting at which the board will consider its adoption.

Written by a nationally recognized author team, with years of experience and expertise in the teaching of both pre-calculus and calculus, this resource is an ideal predecessor to the AP Calculus book. It supports the students as they progress through the 12 basic functions by providing a perfect balance of graphical and algebraic representation, integrating applications throughout the text, including examples and exercises for all levels of students, and using updated data sets and applications.

The materials will be on display from Wednesday, April 3, to Monday, June 3, 2019. Please contact Erika Copeland by email with any questions, comments, or concerns.
