BOARD OF EDUCATION ADOPTS NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR MEETING MANAGEMENT

 

Beginning with its January 14th Regular Meeting, the White Plains Board of Education will adopt new technology which will 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 will provide for 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/PublicOnce 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 2018-19 school year are as follows: January 14th, February 11th, March 11th, April 8th, May 13th and June 10th.

 

Further information is available from the District Clerk at 914-422-2071.
