Board of Education Holds Virtual Meeting
For its first regular meeting since the declaration of the national health emergency, the SD73 Board of Education used technology to broadcast their public board meeting through Facebook Live to nearly 40 members of the public who watched from the comfort of their homes. With an additional 500 views of the video recording within 24 hours, it is evident there is interest from the public and stakeholders for easier access to the work of the Board of Education.
The Board of Education will continue to hold its meetings through Zoom and live-stream them through Facebook until the directive to maintain physical distancing is lifted by the Provincial Health Officer. Given the positive response from the public, however, the Board may opt to stream more public meetings from its office on Ninth Avenue in Kamloops.
On Thursday, April 9, the Budget Information Meeting
will also be held via Zoom and live-streamed on Facebook. More details are posted on the calendar.
