Finance Department Receives Award for Accountability and Transparency

Duncanville ISD receives COE award



Duncanville Independent School District received its 8th consecutive award for financial accountability and transparency. The district was awarded the Certificate of Excellence (COE) in Financial Reporting for the fiscal year ending in 2016 from the Association of School Business Officials International.

The district was recognized for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

Chief Finance Officer Jan Arrington said there are 23 additional financial documents that are required in addition to the audited annual report. She credited Executive Secretary Debbie Prather – the sole person in the district who compiles those additional files.

“I’m proud of the entire department, but especially of Debbie, whose contribution to our financial accountability and transparency is immeasurable,” Arrington said.

Recognition through the COE program can help strengthen a district’s presentation for bond issuance statements and promotes high quality financial reporting.
