Klein ISD Receives Award for Outstanding Financial Reporting

Klein ISD Receives Award for Outstanding Financial Reporting

The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has once again awarded Klein ISD and the Financial Services Department the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. 

“Congratulations to our wonderful Financial Services team for receiving this prestigious award again,” Klein ISD Superintendent Dr. Jenny McGown said. “I am grateful to these amazing professionals who work tirelessly to ensure excellence in our budget process. I am so proud of the high standards for fiscal management set forth by our Financial Services department.”

This honor given by GFOA is Klein ISD’s 26th consecutive award for excellence in financial reporting.

“The Financial Services team continues the tradition of excellence in financial reporting and transparency, and we are very excited to receive this recognition,” Chief Financial Officer Dan Schaefer said. “I appreciate all the hard work from the team in earning this award. It is truly a collaborative effort!”

An impartial panel has judged the report to meet the program’s high standards, which include demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the report.

The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

Congratulations to the Klein ISD Financial Services team on this accomplishment! Our #KleinFamily appreciates your high standard and integrity in handling the district’s budgets and finances.
