     The Association of School Business Officials and the Government Finance Officers Association have both awarded independently a Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting, which is the highest form of recognition in school reporting, to the Fairborn City School District for Fiscal Year 2018.  This award has gained the distinction of being a national award recognized by: Accounting Professionals; Bond Counsel; Underwriters; Securities Analysts; Bond Rating Agencies; Educational, Teacher and Citizen Groups; and Federal and State Agencies.

     "The Fairborn City Schools have always been committed to assure taxpayer accountability and full financial disclosure of the operations of the school district.  These national awards are recognition for this financial accountability and the hard work of the staff of the Treasurer’s Office," said Kevin S. Philo, Treasurer of the Fairborn City Schools.  Mr. Philo continued with, "To compile this report, we have to undergo a vigorous audit every year by the State Auditor's Office and receive the best opinion possible on our financial reports.  We invite this close scrutiny to achieve this goal and to maintain financial accountability and credibility."
