Proposed Policy Changes Would Improve NOLA Public Schools’ Finances

• Bureau of Governmental Research


This week, the Orleans Parish School Board will consider three policy changes that would strengthen NOLA Public Schools’ financial accountability measures and support the district’s financial sustainability. The changes address financial oversight of closing charter schools, public funding returned from closed schools and the district’s use of its General Fund reserves. The proposed policies, as well as a policy the School Board adopted last month, align with findings and recommendations in BGR’s March 2020 report, Learning Curve: A Guide to Navigating School Funding in New Orleans’ Unified District.

BGR acknowledges The Helis Foundation for its donation in support of the Learning Curve report.
