Allen ISD Earns Top Honor for Financial Reporting

Allen ISD Earns Honor for Financial Reporting


Allen ISD has been awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting. This is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting awarded by the Government Finance Officers Association.


The award was given to the Allen ISD Finance Department based upon its comprehensive financial annual report (CAFR). Allen ISD’s CAFR was judged by an impartial panel and met the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive “spirit of full disclosure” to clearly communicate its financial story.


The Certificate of Achievement is one of many financial awards earned by Allen ISD. They include the Meritorious Budget Award from the Association of School Business Officials International in 2019. The district also received an “A - Superior” award from Schools FIRST (Financial Integrity Rating System of Texas), which is conducted annually by the Texas Education Agency. An “A” is the highest available rating, and Allen ISD has earned that rating every year since FIRST was established. Allen ISD is also a current recipient of the "Transparency Star" award from the Texas Comptroller for financial transparency.
