School district introduces digital agendas for board meetings

“For the most part I was very happy with how things went today,” Mitchell said. “What we have to work out is very minimal compared to what I thought we’d have to work out.”

He said the district held several training sessions for everyone who will use the new software, including about a two-hour meeting with School Board members.

“It’s pretty user-friendly once we get a couple of the glitches worked out,” School Board Vice Chairwoman Cindy Frakes said.

Paper copies of the agenda still will be available at meetings for people without a digital device.

The new program also gives the public access to documents tied to agenda items, including PowerPoint presentations. A link to the latest agenda can be found on the school district’s home page below School Board news.

“You really get a lot more information than what used to be available,” Mitchell said.

All the School Board members said they thought going digital will have a lot of benefits in the long run, but it might take some time to get used to the “new normal.”
