Many private schools that operate as not for profits have shared their budgets publicly in annual reports that are often downloadable right off their websites. It doesn't go as far as the OSU program with detailing individual transactions. Categories are often used to lump together like employees to disguise individual pay. The good part is that all members of the school's constituency are privy to where the dollars go. Most also require annual full opinion audits that are reported to the school's various board committees.

A crook is a crook and if someone wants to rip you off they will. But in terms of financial issues the rule is: the more transparent the better.

But transparency and accountability are the very things that can lead to improved trust between the school district and the public. Sure, it might not be pretty in some districts, but I believe would make an improvement in almost all.
