To assist in the process of making the mission and vision a reality, school board meeting agendas and information are posted on-line and through the district website. BoardBook, a web-based software application is being used to extend district communications and transparency in district processes.
BoardBook assists the district by helping to streamline the preparation of board agenda materials. It builds a searchable archive of meeting agenda resources and minutes. It opens the door to electronic distribution of meeting materials, to web posting of finished documents and ultimately, to paperless meetings.
