Paperless School Board Meetings
Pittsburg Unified School District is leveraging the power of the internet to radically improve the governance process while saving time, taxpayer dollars and the environment. This eGovernance initiative replaces the old, time consuming, and costly method of compiling, printing, binding and distributing paper agenda packets by hand. BoardDocs ® is a powerful, easy-to-use solution which enables the district to maximize the effectiveness of board meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open communication with the public, while dramatically increasing productivity and saving thousands of dollars annually.Electronic distribution provides public access via the PUSD website to board agenda items and other governing board related information. This process allows interested parties to view information prior to board meetings. PUSD board members and staff also have access to best practices from other districts that are using the system, allowing them to gain important knowledge about initiatives other governing bodies have considered and implemented.BoardDocs ® uses a structured, collaborative workflow that is specifically designed to meet the unique needs and legal requirements of public school boards, county commissions, municipal governments, and a wide variety of other types of governing bodies.
The eGovernance features can be accessed via the district’s website at https://www.pittsburg.k12.ca.us/boardmeetings
Or, you can go directly to the BoardDocs ® website at http://www.boarddocs.com/ca/pittsburg/Board.nsf/Public.
