Every school district in Alabama is required to post their check registers online not later than 45 days after the end of the month. The links take you to three different compilations in Excel format.
In each file are two worksheets (tabs at the bottom of each page). The first tab is all checks by payee, the second tab is all checks by description.
Dates that each check was written are not made available to the public. To see individual month’s check registers, go to the Hoover City Schools official web site finance page.
The point in compiling and reviewing these is to see where the board of education is spending our money. These are only district-written checks, not individual school’s checks. Those are not published. Please be responsible as you review these expenditures. There is usually an explanation for why the check was written.
If you wish to know why a particular check was written, contact Jason Gaston, Communications Director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The board of education approves these expenditures, month-by-month, at each board meeting under the “Financial Statements” portion of the agenda.
