The Governance Committee of the Metro Nashville School Board met on Saturday and made recommendations for policy changes that will result in more financial transparency for all schools, including publicly-funded, privately run charter schools.
The changes require that private funds used to support a school be disclosed and that complaints about charter school operating procedures be handled in the same way as complaints about traditional schools are handled.
Board members who supported the change suggest that the new policy would lead to more transparency system-wide.
Board member Amy Frogge noted that the policy will allow for fiscal transparency and prevent potential financial mishaps.
