Euclid City School District Joins OhioCheckbook.gov
COLUMBUS – Ohio Treasurer Robert Sprague today announced that the Euclid City School District (Cuyahoga County) has joined OhioCheckbook.gov.
“We’re pleased to welcome Euclid City Schools as our newest Ohio Checkbook partner,” said Treasurer Sprague. “OhioCheckbook.gov is a single, streamlined resource for Ohioans to access spending information about our state and local governments. When residents can see how their tax dollars are spent, they take a greater interest in the decisions impacting their communities.”
The Euclid City School District is the 25th government entity in Cuyahoga County to join OhioCheckbook.gov. The district's online checkbook includes more than 23,300 individual transactions that represent over $192 million in spending from July 2, 2018 through September 30, 2020.
“Ohio Checkbook allows for greater transparency with our constituents,” said Euclid City School District Board President Donna Sudar. “We take pride in our fiscal accountability and have always encouraged our community to follow our finances. This opens the door for our community to review our spending and accountability.”
OhioCheckbook.gov was launched in June 2020. The new transparency website combined OhioCheckbook.com (previously administered by the Treasurer’s office) and Ohio’s Interactive Budget (previously operated by the Office of Budget and Management) to create a single, one-stop resource for taxpayers to learn more about spending at the state and local levels of government.
By streamlining website administration, eliminating duplication, and reducing overall operating costs, OhioCheckbook.gov will keep government transparency at taxpayers’ fingertips for years to come
