Canadian School Boards
School Boards of all sizes and geographies are facing increased pressure for their accountability and environmental responsibility which they must balance against the need for accessibility and improved efficiency. These challenges also represent an opportunity to reduce the costs associated with their Board of Trustees and meeting management at all levels of the school district.
Halton Catholic District School Board home to over 29,000 students in southwestern Ontario, and Yellowknife Education District #1 located in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories one of Canada’s most geographically isolated may seem worlds apart yet shared similar meeting efficiency challenges. By considering electronic meeting management, both were hoping to reduce staff workload, paper usage and costs, while improving the quality of interaction and communication between meeting participants, staff in addition to parents and students. Both organizations engaged eSCRIBE Solutions to provide its award winning paperless meeting and agenda management solution as a tool to automate the entire meeting lifecycle for Board Administrators, meeting contributors and participants.
