“The Oakwood School District has certainly proven itself fiscally responsible, and through its unfaltering commitment, it has earned the respect and appreciation of many.  We are proud to note that it is through the efforts of such exceptional public employees as all those associated with the district that the State of Ohio continues to prosper and remains a fine place in which to live and work,” reads the proclamation sponsored by State Rep. Jim Butler (41st District).

The Certificate of Achievement, the GFOA’s highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, is for the District’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for the 2018 fiscal year.

Oakwood Schools is being recognized for Excellence in Financial Reporting by the Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA).  The Certificate of Achievement, the group’s highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, is for the District’s comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR) for the 2018 fiscal year. 

An impartial panel of experts judged the CAFR to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure,” clearly communicating Oakwood Schools’ financial story to its stakeholders.

“This recognition affirms our district’s intent to keep open lines of communication with our community.  We never take for granted our community’s trust and will continue to provide information in a clear and useful way so stakeholders can be informed and engaged in our process,” Board of Education President Todd Duwel said. 

Oakwood Schools’ has consistently received national recognition for its financial reporting for more than 20 years.

“We are pleased to add another year of recognition to decades of transparent and effective financial reporting as defined by this award.  Oakwood Schools has been well represented by past Treasurer Kevin Philo and assistant treasurer Kevin Burr in meeting the requirements of sound reporting by governmental entities,” Treasurer Dan Schall said.
