Popular Annual Financial Report

A Popular Annual Financial Report (PAFR) is an easy-to-read publication that provides citizens with an overview of how their tax dollars are managed and spent. It is designed to be readily accessible and easily understandable to the general public and other interested parties without a background in public finance. The PAFR highlights and simplified information from the District’s Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CARF) and focuses on the general operating activities and key financial trends of the District’s General Fund.

The PAFR is part of the District’s ongoing commitment to keep citizens informed about finances in Des Moines Public Schools and to be accountable for the receipt and expenditure of public funds.
