For Immediate Release
BOARD OF EDUCATION ADOPTS NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR MEETING MANAGEMENT
Beginning last year, the White Plains Board of Education adopted new technology to improve the process of Board governance. BoardDocs is a paperless management tool, designed to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of board meetings with increased transparency and more open communication with the public. It provides electronic distribution of meeting agendas with unprecedented public access to related information. All documents associated with a meeting are archived and can be accessed using the systems search feature.
Eventually the district will also use the system for online policy management, accessible by the public.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Joseph L. Ricca said, 'This is a win-win situation. We expect greater efficiency for our staff and increased transparency for the public'.
Meeting agendas are available by simply going to either of the following the sites:
https://www.boarddocs.com/ny/wpcsd/Board.nsf/Public. Once the agenda is public it will automatically appear on your screen. Alternatively, go to the district website: www.whiteplainspublicschools.org, 'Board of Education,' 'BoardDocs.' Meeting agendas will be posted 48 hours in advance of meetings and will no longer be distributed via email, as previously done. Regular Meeting dates for the balance of the 2019-20 school year are as follows: October 7th, November 4th, December 9th, January 13th, February 10th, March 9th, April 20th, May 11th and June 15th.
Further information is available from the District Clerk at 914-422-2071.
