The Government Finance Officers Association of the United States and Canada (GFOA) awarded the Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting to Canutillo ISD for its comprehensive annual financial report (CAFR). The Certificate of Achievement is the highest form of recognition in the area of governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by the District and its management.

“Our mission of excellence extends beyond the classroom and encompasses all departments within our organization,” Canutillo Superintendent of Schools Dr. Pedro Galaviz said. “When it comes to our students, every member of our team is responsible for their adequate education.”

The CAFR has been judged by an impartial panel to meet the high standards of the program, which includes demonstrating a constructive "spirit of full disclosure" to clearly communicate its financial story and motivate potential users and user groups to read the CAFR.
