The Escambia County School Board has installed new cameras and a new software system which will enable all board workshops as well as regular meetings to be archived. The workshops and all regular meetings will be available for the public to view online, anytime. I am very impressed with the system and after watching the archived copy of our last workshop I must say I believe this is a huge step forward for transparency. The meetings can be accessed by going to the district homepage, then clicking on the board members/meetings link, which will then take the reader to a chronological list of the previously held School Board Meetings and Workshops.

I am one member of a five person board. The opinions I express on this forum are mine only, and do not necessarily reflect the views or opinions of the Escambia County Staff, Administrators, Employees, or anyone else associated with Escambia County Florida. I am interested in establishing this blog as a means of additional transparency to the public, outreach to the community, and information dissemination to all who choose to look. Feedback is welcome, but because public participation is equally encouraged, appropriate language and decorum is mandatory.
