LISD finance secures honor 13th consecutive year

The Government Finance Officers Association of the Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded the Lockhart ISD’s finance department the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This is the 13th consecutive year the district’s department has earned this honor for its comprehensive annual financial report.
 

Of the 1,228 public school districts in Texas, only 79 received this distinction. The certificate is the highest form of recognition in the area of government accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

Finance department

 

The LISD Board of Trustees recognized the business and finance department at its most recent regular Board meeting late April, including Jill Hansen, Tina Ramirez, Tina Knudsen, Michelle Wylie, and Tanya Homann.  Nancy Arana is also part of the honored team but was unable to attend the recognition event.

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.

“The district is incredibly proud of Chief Financial Officer Tina Knudsen and the business and finance department,” said Superintendent Susan Bohn. “The financial stability and transparency of a district is paramount in providing the resources necessary to give our #LISDChampions the best learning experiences to be future-ready.”

The GFOA is a major professional association servicing the needs of nearly 19,000 appointed and elected local, state, and provincial-appointed officials and other practitioners.
