Great Oaks wins financial reporting award

Submitted story

The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Great Oaks Career Campuses by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial report.

“The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting,” according to a GFOA written statement. “And its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.”

Great Oaks’ comprehensive annual financial report was 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 the school district’s financial story.

This is the second financial reporting award given to Great Oaks for the 2018 annual financial report. In April, Great Oaks was awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Association of School Business Officials International.
