The AFR is the Annual Financial Report. It is a required report for all Utah LEA's (Local Education Agencies) which is prepared on the modified accrual basis detailing revenues and expenditures and giving a balance sheet organized by Fund, Function and Object. Utah follows the NCES (National Center for Education Statistics) account code and definitions. The account definitions can be found on the USOE website at schools.utah.gov/finance/Financial-Reports/Chart-of-Accounts.aspx.
