We comply with the Public School Financial Transparency Act.

Academy District 20 strives for strong financial health by providing financial guidelines and policies, authorizing use of funds and using recommended business practices, internal controls and accountability reports.

The district budgeting and accounting practices are governed by the Academy District 20 Board of Education Ends and the Executive Limitations. We follow Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) established by the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB) for both accounting and budgeting. Each year the Board of Education adopts and appropriates a budget no later than June 30.

With the passage of HB 10-1036, The Colorado General Assembly enacted the "Public School Financial Transparency Act,” which directs local education providers to post financial information online, in a free downloadable format.
