DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – The Dayton Public Schools are among the first districts in the state to join Ohio’s new Online Checkbook initiative.
The school board agreed to the move at its May 19 meeting. It will provide access to the district’s financial records and should be posted this summer.
Dayton schools says being part of the on line database will provide the district increased financial transparency and add value to the district’s strong financial, managerial and operational controls.
The Online Checkbook is the first of its kind. It is designed to show you exactly how businesses spend their money.
The checkbook displays more than $400-billion dollars spent by state departments.
It is the brainchild of Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel.
