“BoardDocs” is a paperless management tool, designed to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of board meetings with 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 system’s 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.”
