The D181 Business Office received the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting for its 14th year from the Association of School Business Officials International for its reporting in Fiscal Year 2017. This certificate honors school districts for their high-quality Comprehensive Annual Financial Reports, a report which goes beyond the minimums established by the National Council on Governmental Accounting. This award is a testament to our community that D181 is credible and transparent and is viewed by credit-rating agencies as a positive factor in decision making.
