Ohio State Treasurer Josh Mandel and Dayton Board of Education member Dr. Adil Baguirov announced the joining of the OhioCheckbook.com by the Dayton Public Schools.
Realizing the fact that a lot of public spending is not easy to monitor and track to prevent waste, fraud and abuse, in 2015 Dayton Board of Education elected member Dr. Adil Baguirov became the leading proponent to voluntarily sign up Dayton Public Schools (DPS) to the Ohio Checkbook Initiative (OhioCheckbook.com).
DPS became the first urban school district in Ohio and first district in Montgomery County to start the process of joining this #1 transparency and accountability tool.
Together with the establishment of the office of independent Internal Auditor, this became the second major transparency and accountability improvements that Dr. Baguirov pushed through at DPS in 2015, effectively making Dayton Public Schools the leader in the state - and in the nation considering that Ohio Checkbook Initiative propelled Ohio to the #1 ranking in transparency in the U.S.
By applying the class-leading and strict fiscally conservative principles, Dr. Baguirov led the way to cut waste, fraud and abuse, save taxpayers' money, and improve schools by making sure more of DPS funds are spent in the classrooms.

Proud of fiscal conservatives!
This initiative made Ohio #1 in the nation in transparency
