The Ohio Department of Education works with school districts and entities that serve school districts to develop and deploy analytical tools that allow districts and other stakeholders to analyze more thoroughly district spending patterns in order to promote more effective and efficient use of resources. The outputs of these efforts - reports and documents designed to better understand and subsequently improve the collection and use of financial data by school districts - will be posted to this Web site as they become available.
Draft District Fiscal Benchmark Report
We are very interested in your feedback regarding this tool. Specifically:
- Is the tool useful to you?
- Do the data queries and resulting data elements make sense to you when reviewing your district's information?
- Are there other data elements that you would propose adding in future years?
If you have any questions or would like to make suggestions, please contact Jim Long at James.Long@ode.state.oh.us or (614) 466-0523.
