PVUSD ADOPTS “NEXT GENERATION” PAPERLESS MEETING TECHNOLOGY
Save Time, Money and Increase Governing Body Effectiveness
PVUSD is leveraging the power of the Internet to radically improve the governance process while saving time, taxpayer dollars and the environment. This new eGovernance initiative will replace the old and costly method of compiling, printing, binding and distributing paper agenda packets by hand. The remarkably powerful, easy-to-use solution will enable PVUSD to maximize the effectiveness of our 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.
The paperless meeting solution, called “BoardDocs®”, was initially developed in the year 2000 for a Georgia school district. Since then, hundreds of governing bodies nationwide have adopted the system. By making meeting agendas and supporting documents available on the Internet, PVUSD will be able distribute documents associated with board meetings more quickly and efficiently.
Electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide unprecedented public access via the PVUSD’s Web site to agenda items and other governing body-related information. This process will allow interested parties to review information prior to board meetings. After the meeting, individuals can review the agenda items and see what action the governing body took, complete with voting results. All documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by meeting date or by using the system’s comprehensive search feature. Through the MetaSearch feature, members of the governing body will also have access to best practices from other organizations that are using the system, allowing them to gain important knowledge about initiatives other governing bodies have considered and implemented.
PVUSD will also use the BoardDocs technology to publish its policies and procedures online for the public to easily view; it is the intent to have this new system in place as soon as possible. PVUSD is excited to venture into the possibilities of this system in which all interested parties can have access to the most current and historical meeting information immediately.
The new eGovernance features can be accessed via the organization’s Web site at www.pvusd.net. For questions regarding the new eGovernance initiatives, contact Alicia G. Jiménez in the office of the Superintendent and Board of Trustees via e-mail at email@example.com.
