BCSD transparency postings / reports

Published Monday, May 13, 2019

The publication of BCSD's monthly payment transactions is in compliance with the General Assembly's directive of transparency. Any public inquiries on transparency postings should follow BCSD board policy. 

Due to software implementation challenges, BCSD is unable to provide transparency reports in their typical format after October 2018; however, in order to remain transparent to our public, the district has provided a listing of all P-Card purchases and the accounts payable check register to provide what was typically provided in a single report. The district believes the combination of these two reports represents the totality of transactions but will supplement as needed. 

Berkeley County School District is disappointed in the amount of time the new financial software implementation has taken. Central office and school staff members have worked around the clock to immediately make available reports that satisfy transparency obligations under South Carolina law. We anticipate the board will take swift action to address the shortcomings of the software implementation.

BCSD transparency postings can be viewed and downloaded in the Finance section of our website.
