District receives award for 2017-18 annual report
The communications and finance departments at Broken Arrow Public Schools were recently honored with the Popular Annual Financial Reporting (PAFR) award from the Government Finance Officers Association for the fiscal year ending 2018.
This second-ever PAFR, which is centered on the district’s core values, combines high-level financial information with district highlights and accomplishments from the 2017-18 school year. It is designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public and other interested parties without a background in public finance.
Broken Arrow Public Schools remains the only school district in Oklahoma to receive this honor.
“Every year, the communications team creates an annual report that provides our patrons with our breakthrough moments from the previous school year,” Broken Arrow Public Schools Director of Communications Christina Dixon said. “Again this year, we teamed up with our incredible finance department to integrate our annual report with additional financial information, which was presented in an easy-to-follow manner for our patrons.”
Chief Financial Officer Natalie Eneff was ecstatic to hear the district won this prestigious honor for the second time.
“The PAFR has been a goal of ours for several years, and it’s great to see everyone’s efforts come to completion,” Eneff said. “Our district has participated in the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report program for the past seven years. While this is a wonderful publication that we are very proud of, the report is targeted toward financially savvy individuals. The PAFR appeals to all patrons who want to read about our district while also seeking some detailed financial information.”
