NEW ORLEANS – The Bureau of Governmental Research said it supports three policy changes being considered by the Orleans Parish School Board to 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.
