TCAPS Awarded 18th Consecutive Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting
The Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO) has awarded Traverse City Area Public Schools (TCAPS) its Certificate of Excellence (COE) in Financial Reporting for the fiscal year 2022.
“TCAPS has attained this high level of reporting and transparency for 18 consecutive years,” Superintendent Dr. John VanWagoner stated. “Receiving this award reaffirms our ongoing commitment to accurate financial reporting.”
By participating in the COE program, school districts demonstrate their commitment to financial transparency. Applicants submit their Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for review by a team of financial professionals who provide feedback to improve future documents. In its review of TCAPS, there were no comments noted for areas of improvement. A district’s participation in the COE program can facilitate bond rating and continuing bond disclosure processes.
“The COE’s mission is to promote and recognize excellence in financial reporting,” ASBO International Chief Operations Officer/Interim Executive Director Siobhan McMahon says. “The Annual Comprehensive Financial Report informs stakeholders about the financial and economic state of the district, making it an important communications tool for building trust and engaging with the school community.”
