Motion – Live Streaming Meetings

I submitted the following motion to be heard at the December 4th meeting:

Backgrounder:

There have been past motions from previous boards which have been passed  to record all open board meetings and yet they have not been implemented even though many other boards and cities have stepped up to improve transparency and accountability to the public.
The Board of Education SD 40 has five new trustees and it’s time for our school district to make transparency and accountability a priority by using technology to give everyone the opportunity to access to all open board meetings at anytime.

To improve transparency and accountability, I recommend that the Board of Education of School District No.40 (New Westminster) commit to live streaming all public board meetings by directing staff to assess the feasibility of implementation and report back to the Board in January at our Operations meeting.
