Reporting guidelines—School Districts


The Arizona Auditor General has created reporting guidelines following the Governmental Accounting Standards Board’s authoritative literature. They include illustrative examples of financial statements, disclosures, and schedules. The examples are neither authoritative nor required to be followed. Instead, they provide sample displays and disclosures to help ensure consistent and accurate presentation. 

When district management uses these guidelines, management agrees to take responsibility for preparing and fairly presenting the annual financial statements, related note disclosures, and all accompanying information, including required supplementary information (RSI), supplementary information other than RSI, and other required disclosures. Management should ensure that its reports follow applicable authoritative guidance.

We also prepare reporting guidelines for Arizona’s community colleges and counties.
