Beginning September 12, audiences will be able to watch Evanston Township High School District 202 Board of Education meetings live on the Internet and on the school’s local cable channel. Viewers with Internet access will be able to watch live meetings, view the Board’s agenda, and access relevant documents directly from the ETHS website. Evanston residents with Comcast Cable will be able to watch live meetings on Channel 18.
The school board normally meets in regular session on the second and fourth Mondays of each month during the school year at 7:30 p.m. Viewers interested in watching live meetings may visit the Board of Education’s meetings page on the ETHS website at http://www.eths.k12.il.us/D202meetings/. The meeting schedule is listed by date, and board packets will be posted the Friday before a regularly scheduled meeting.
In addition, videos of the board meetings will be archived and can be viewed over the Internet at any time on the school’s new video-on-demand page, located on the ETHS website. Video-on-demand will allow viewers with Internet access to quickly locate and watch ETHS event videos, including select athletic events, school performances, graduation, and board meetings. The September 12th board meeting will be posted. Videos that are currently housed on the ETHS YouTube channel will be migrated over to the new on-demand system over the next school year.
This technology creates more opportunities for constituents to receive timely, accurate information about important Board decisions. “We are pleased to have this technology so we can provide an additional way for our community to have abundant information about ETHS,” said District 202 Superintendent Eric Witherspoon.
Board meetings will be rebroadcast on Evanston Comcast Channel 18 on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 7:30 P.M.
