School Board Recognitions
August 20, 2013

6. Student, Employee, and Public Awards and Recognitions
6A. GFOA Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
The School Board is pleased to recognize the Office of Business Services for receiving a Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting from the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA). Accepting the award on behalf of the office is Director Sammy Cohen. Also in attendance in the audience are staff members from the Office of Business Services. We’d like to ask those staff members to stand while we acknowledge your accomplishment.

This Certificate of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting was awarded to VBCPS for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2012. This is the highest form of recognition in governmental accounting and financial reporting, and its attainment represents a significant accomplishment by a government and its management.

Please join me in congratulating the Office of Business Services for its outstanding work!

6B. The Center for Green Schools 2013 Trailblazing Teacher
Mr. Chairman, you will note that on the agenda there is a recognition listed for Laura Wood, a science teacher at Ocean Lakes High School. Unfortunately, a scheduling conflict prevented Ms. Woods from joining us this evening. Instead, she will be recognized at a future meeting for earning a 2013 Trailblazing Teacher award from the U.S. Green Building Council’s Center for Green Schools.

That concludes our scheduled recognitions, Mr. Chairman.
