Weathersfield Schools launch online checkbook

Posted: Updated:
WEATHERSFIELD TWP., Ohio -

A Trumbull County school district is taking another step toward transparency. 

Weathersfield Local School District has joined the online checkbook, OhioCheckbook.com. 

The database allows community members to view online all of the district's spending. 

Weathersfield Local School District's online checkbook includes over 5,000 individual transactions that represent more than $4 million throughout the first six months of 2018.

Weathersfield Local School District is the seventh school district in Trumbull County to post their spending on OhioCheckbook.com.  

In December 2014, Treasurer Josh Mandel launched OhioCheckbook.com, which sets a new national standard for government transparency and for the first time in Ohio history puts all state spending information on the internet.

"I believe the people of Trumbull County have a right to know how their tax money is being spent, and I applaud local leaders here for partnering with my office to post the finances on OhioCheckbook.com," said Treasurer Mandel.  "By posting local government spending online, we are empowering taxpayers across Ohio to hold public officials accountable."
