School board thinks paperless

School board considers going paperless What would a paperless school board meeting look like? Laptops for all school trustees was the suggestion at the recent school board meeting. This would save on paper shuffling at board meetings, said secretary-treasurer Ken Campbell at the Jan. 23 meeting. He says the agendas, minutes and other documents could all be downloaded from the school district website. Some copies would still be printed for the public, but in the future he’d like to see all staff and trustees with laptops. “If the board is interested, I’ll start to provide laptops,” said Mr. Campbell. He said he could also provide training and procedures to trustees on how to use them. “I’d be curious to see how much it costs,” said trustee Christine Martyniuk after Mr. Campbell’s pitch. School board chair Wayne Wilson agreed. He asked for a quick comparison to see, costwise, what the board would be looking at. Mr. Campbell will bring this to the next board meeting.
