Open Book$

The Chalkboard Project's Open Book$ website aims to provide the public with an open, honest look at where K-12 dollars really go.

Chalkboard's partners in the Open Book$ Project include COSA, Citizens for Oregon's Future, ODE and OSBA. Audited data is supplied by ODE in cooperation with Oregon's 198 school districts. The Open Book$ Project categorizes the audited data into five main sections: Teaching & Student Resources; Buses, Buildings & Foods; Principal's Office, Business Services & Technology; and Central Administration.  Details about the accounting object and function codes of the five categories are available.
