District's business department recognized for excellence in financial reporting
The Burleson Independent School District's Business Department earned a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting in September from the Government Finance Officers Association for the district's Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).
"BISD Assistant Superintendent for Business and Support Services Ronald Kuehler and his department team are to be applauded for achieving this honor," BISD Superintendent Richard Crummel said. "We have been recognized by the Texas Education Agency for the highest standards in our financial accounting for many years but this is our first year to make application for the CAFR honor."
The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting. Attaining this recognition is a significant accomplishment for the District and its business department. The CAFR is judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
