Hopewell Valley Regional School District (HVRSD) has been awarded the Certificate of Excellence in Financial Reporting award from the Association of School Business Officials (ASBO) International.

The district was recognized specifically for the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report of 2015. 

Recognition by this award is a confirmation of the district’s strong commitment to financial accountability and transparency. This is the fourth year that HVRSD has participated in the Certificate of Excellence program and the district is committed to maintaining high levels of fiscal integrity, above and beyond stated requirements.
