District uses technology to boost public access

Snoqualmie Valley School District has launched a new cloud-based program, BoardDocs LT, to improve public access to school board information. The paperless system allows the district to distribute documents for school board meetings more quickly, efficiently, and cost effectively, saving time and resources, as well as offering greater public access to agenda items and other board-related information on the district website.

“This tool is aimed at increasing visibility and access to information, while streamlining efficiencies. As the breadth of information that we post online has grown in recent years, we hope this will provide an easy-to-use solution for the public to access documents related to the district and school board,” explained Jeff Hogan, Snoqualmie Valley’s Executive Director of Information Technology.

Users can review information prior to board meetings, and documents associated with meetings will be automatically archived, retrievable through a meeting date search. Visit the district website at www.svsd410.org, select the District Information tab, then School Board, and click on the BoardDocs link to see the latest school board information.

The BoardDocs program was recommended to school districts by the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA). More than 900 schools across the country are using this program to help facilitate public access to school board information.
