The Kootenai School District is one of a minority of school districts to comply with Idaho transparency laws.
A report compiled by Idaho Education News showed that approximately 20 percent of school districts comply with website transparency laws set by the state.
The St. Maries and Plummer-Worley School Districts did not meet the requirements.
According to Idaho statutes, charter schools and public-school districts are required to have certain information accessible on their websites.
Information includes budgets and audits, vendor and personnel contracts, monthly expenditures, board meeting agendas and minutes, and strategic plans.
The St. Maries School District does post financial information online. However, it may have been faulted for not having payroll and expenditure reports posted since October and the strategic plan could not be found.
Plummer-Worley School District financial information and strategic plan is up to date. However, vendor and personnel contracts could not be found.
According to Idaho Education News, only 32 school district and charter websites met the criteria in 2020. In 2019, 86 districts met the requirements. The most common requirement missed was the publication of vendor and personnel contracts.
