School District Receives Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting for 26th-Straight Year
West Linn-Wilsonville was one of just 538 school districts across the nation to receive the CAFR last year, and one of 21 school districts in the State of Oregon.
"This award is only given to school districts that demonstrate full transparency in their financial practices," said Director Dylan Hydes. "This award indicates the district goes above the minimum requirements in an effort of transparency for our community and to educate our citizens on our governmental finances. To receive this award 26 straight years is a tremendous accomplishment and a testament to our business office."
WLWV Chief Financial Officer Dr. Son Le Hughes gave credit to her staff, and thanked the entire school district for the recognition.
"This award is really a credit to the whole school district," said Dr. Hughes. "I want to thank our department leaders and principals for working so well with our team to ensure we have what we need to work effectively."
