I'm proud to announce that we have recently received the Ohio Auditor of State Award for exemplary financial reporting for this past school year. We are very proud of this distinguished award and have worked hard to use tax payer dollars to have the greatest impact on student learning. When we receive our award next year it will be our fifth in a row and as a result, we will receive special recognition.
We are excited about some new opportunities at Triad Schools for the upcoming school year. By partnering with Hi Point, we are creating a satellite program for Advanced Manufacturing that will serve students in grades 7-12. This program is funded by Hi Point and we appreciate their continued support.
We are also announcing the implementation of Triad Opportunity School, which will be an online platform that complements our tradition class offerings and allows our students more elective choices. It will also support students who are not successful in the traditional setting by allowing them the flexibility to take more courses online for credit recovery with teacher support. This program will better meet the diversified needs of our learners in the 21st Century.
