Clark County School District Superintendent Dwight Jones announced the launch of the “Open Book,” a new website that allows the public to see the revenue and expenses needed to keep the nation’s fifth-largest school district operating.

“We've asked everyone to be more accountable,” Jones said. "Funds are dwindling at the same time expectations are rising. Making our budget information easily accessible to the public tells the taxpayers: we are accountable to you.”

The “Open Book” effort is all about earning community trust, Jones added. Since the beginning of his tenure with the District, Jones emphasized the need to have an open conversation with the community.

“Open Book” is an interactive site, which features an option for visitors to suggest ways the District can better spend its existing funds.
