For the fourth year in a row, the Klamath County School District has received a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association of the U.S. and Canada for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report.

The district was one of 22 of 197 school districts statewide to receive the award, considered to be the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting.

An impartial committee spent six months reviewing the district’s financial report for fiscal year ending June 30, 2017. The comprehensive report replaces a standard audit. “It’s reflective of better management and more transparency,” said Renée Ferguson, KCSD’s director of business services.

Klamath County School District Superintendent Glen Szymoniak was on hand this week to help celebrate the achievement. “It means a lot to me that we have a business department that does this,” he said.
