Jeffco Schools wins financial reporting award

Voters always want to know their tax dollars are being used responsibly, and Jeffco Schools has committed to using citizen oversight committees and external audits to monitor and be transparent about funds from 5A and 5B. But did you know that Jeffco Schools also has won national awards for its financial reporting?

Jeffco Schools received the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and CANADA (GFOA) this spring for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR).

The award is the highest form of recognition in government accounting and reporting. In addition, the district has earned this award every year since 1983.

To ensure the best use of taxpayer dollars, funds from both 5A and 5B, the Jeffco Schools mill and bond, will be monitored by a citizen oversight committee and subjected to an annual, external audit.  

Mill levy override dollars will be monitored by the Financial Oversight Committee. Bond dollars will be monitored by the Capital Asset Advisory Committee.
