NNPS earns two awards for financial reporting

(07/29/2015) -Newport News Public Schools has earned a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and a Certificate of Excellence from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the 2014 fiscal year.

The GFOA Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting. The NNPS Comprehensive Financial Report was judged by an impartial panel and met the program's high standards by demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to communicate its financial story. This is the 13th consecutive time that NNPS has earned this recognition from the GFOA.

The Association of School Business Officials International's (ASBO) Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting was awarded to NNPS for exceeding the program's high standards for financial reporting, accountability and transparency. The NNPS report was reviewed by a team of professional accountants and government auditors. This award marks the sixth consecutive time that the school district has earned the ASBO Certificate of Excellence.

The Comprehensive Annual Financial Report provides summary and detailed information about the 2014 fiscal year and past years through narratives, financial statements, spreadsheets and graphs.
