The Peoria Unified School District was recently awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials International.
The Certificate of Excellence recognizes that Peoria Unified has met the COE program’s high standards for financial reporting and transparency. Peoria Unified earned the Certificate of Excellence for its Annual Comprehensive Financial Report for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2021.

Peoria Unified Chief Financial Officer Michelle Myers said the certificate demonstrates Peoria Unified’s ongoing commitment in providing accurate financial reporting and transparency for the community.
“We are pleased to receive the Certificate of Excellence again this year,” she said.
