Hood River County School District Awarded for Excellence in Financial Reporting
10/07/2019 (Chicago, Illinois) --The Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting has been awarded to Hood River County School District by Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) for its comprehensive annual financial reporting (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.
An Award of Financial Reporting Achievement has been awarded to the individual(s) or department designated by the government as primarily responsible for preparing the award-winning CAFR.
The CAFR has been 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.
Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) advances excellence in government finance by providing best practices, professional development, resources and practical research for more than 20,500 members and the communities they serve.
The district is committed to providing consistent and transparent communications and will hire a ‘Communications and Community Engagement Specialist’ to replace her position.
On Thursday, Hood River County School District opened its first new school in 50 years, made possible by community support for the 2016 construction bond. Wenaha Group, Opsis Architecture, Kirby Nagelhout Construction, and committees made of educators and community members worked collaboratively to build a state-of-the-art school that emphasizes student learning, safety and historical preservation.
