Interactive Financial Portal (OpenGov) 

The Lafayette Parish School System has collaborated with OpenGov to provide an open data and financial transparency portal to our community. This portal provides easy access to financial information for the school district; the same sourced financial information that is being presented to our School Board and reported to the State of Louisiana’s Legislative Audit Division. The OpenGov portal provides the opportunity to view, filter, and analyze the revenues and expenditures for our school district. Graphs and related transaction details offer the community an opportunity to become more familiar with the District’s financial data and drill down to see the areas of specific interest. The portal is designed to enhance the transparency of our district’s financial reporting while providing the community with an opportunity to become more familiar with our operations.
