Board management software: A buyer’s guide for school leaders

Unlock efficient, transparent school board operations

As a public education leader, you're no stranger to the rapid changes and growing demands in the education sector. Your school board plays a pivotal role in shaping the future of your institution and your community. But with shortened timelines and increasing expectations for transparency and community engagement, it's crucial to have the right tools at your disposal.

Why is efficient agenda and meeting management essential for school boards? There are several reasons:

Transparency: Once the agenda is published online, there is greater awareness in the community and beyond. Additionally, community members can choose to be informed about upcoming board meetings. Your public website becomes the single source of truth, and livestreaming helps build trust and offers great accessibility.

As Dr. R. J. Gravel, Associate Superintendent, Glenbrook High School District 225, puts it, "After implementing livestreaming, we have seen an increase in attendance both remote and in person, an increase in community participation both informal and formal, and an increase in trust because of the transparency."

Community engagement: Well-managed meetings encourage community engagement. Stakeholders need to know when meetings are happening, what topics will be discussed, and how they can attend or provide input.

Efficiency: Efficient meetings help save time and resources, ensuring that important decisions are made in a timely manner.

Accountability: The public expects clear communication and transparency from their school board members. Effective board management holds decision-makers accountable.
