Washoe County School District Unveils 'Open Checkbook'

Posted: Updated:
A new website was unveiled on Tuesday that gives people a way to take a look at what money has been spent across the Washoe County School District.

At the direction of the Board of Trustees, "Open Checkbook" was created over a span of months by district staff.

The website features a searchable database. We found information about funding on capital projects, vendor contracts and employee salaries.

While there are websites that have already listed salaries over recent years, district officials say this website will have the most up-to-date information.    

They also say this helps make them more accountable in their spending.
