Parkway Awarded Certificate of Excellence

The Parkway School District has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for the preparation and issuance of the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) for fiscal year end 2005 by the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International in Reston, Virginia. This is the fourth consecutive year Parkway has received this distinction. "Participation in the Certificate of Excellence Program is such a rewarding experience. Attaining this award brings a feeling of confidence and has remarkably increased our financial reporting credibility not only to Parkway, but to the community as a whole," says Mark Stockwell, chief financial officer. By preparing and presenting a CAFR, Parkway validated the credibility of the school system's operations, measured the integrity and technical competence of the business staff, assisted in strengthening district presentations for bond issuance statements and provided professional recognition. The Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting is the highest recognition for school district financial operations offered by ASBO and is only conferred to school systems that have met or exceeded the standards of the program. The program was designed by ASBO International to enable school business officials to achieve a high standard of financial reporting.
