Chandler USD board approves publication of annual financial report

The Chandler USD board approved the publication of the district's annual financial report at a meeting Sept. 25. The report is required by law to be submitted by Oct. 15 and to be published on the Arizona Department of Education website.

The board approved the publication of the report in a 4-0 vote, with Barb Mozdzen, governing board president, absent.

The report records the expenditures, revenues and transfers for the district and is used to create financial statements prepared by the district's auditors, according to CUSD Chief Financial Officer Lana Berry.
