Cincinnati Board of Education Meetings Streamed Live

Digital Viewing Option Designed to Increase Convenience, Transparency

The Cincinnati Board of Education announced that, starting on January 27, its regular bimonthly meetings will be available for live-stream viewing via the district's website, cps- (click on Board Broadcasts under the Public Tab on the Home Page). "As we prepare our students to be proficient digital citizens in this information age, it's important that our Board take advantage of all the communication tools that technology provides," said Board President Eve Bolton. "We believe that live streaming is another step in our commitment to enhancing transparency and openness about the discussions and decisions we make that impact Cincinnati Public Schools' 33,000 students. Now, stakeholders who want to follow these decisions can do so without attending Board meetings or waiting for meeting minutes to be posted." All regular Board meetings will be archived on the district's Web site within 24 hours of the meeting. The Board also anticipates live streaming of Committee of the Whole meetings and potentially Board committee meetings in the future. Also in the works are plans to reinstate and expand cable-casting via community cable access.
