WG ADOPTS “NEXT GENERATION” PAPERLESS MEETING TECHNOLOGY
eGovernance Solution Enables Organization to Save Time, Money and Increase Governing Body Effectiveness
Waynesfield-Goshen is leveraging the power of the Internet to 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 the organization to maximize the effectiveness of their 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®”, will enable W-G to distribute documents associated with board meetings more quickly and efficiently, at a dramatically reduced cost to the organization.
Electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide public access via the school district web site (www.wgschools.org) 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. You can access BoardDocs by visiting http://www.boarddocs.com/oh/wglsd/Board.nsf/Public
