     Financial Reporting

    The district continues to serve as a responsible steward of taxpayer funds. The community generously supported the district's 2012 Bond Initiative which provides $180 million in support of school building maintenance, the purchase of new school buses and improved technology for students as well as the 2015 Maintenance & Operations Override which will provide support for programs, increased compensation for employees and free full-day Kindergarten. 

    Peoria Unified proudly spends less on administration and directs more dollars into the classroom than other districts of comparable size. The district's Financial Office has been recognized for the last 23 consecutive years by the Government Finance Officers Association for Excellence in Financial Reporting.
