COVID-19 Support and Resources Meetings

Access to zoom support for Board Meetings

Technology Services will provide a resource to help run your Board Meetings with Zoom.  Before the first meeting, a test session will take place to ensure the setup and configuration is running properly.  There will be an introduction to the platform and all the features that are available for use.

The Zoom meeting will be hosted by ESC-20 and co-hosted by the LEA. Technology Services will ensure that every meeting is working properly and will troubleshoot issues that may arise at the start of the meeting.  They will support the entire meeting for the first 2 sessions.

Once the LEA has become comfortable with conducting Board Meetings over zoom, Technology Services will start out the zoom sessions, but will the leave the meeting and be available as an on-call resource should an issue arise.

Zoom Board Meetings must to be scheduled through ESC-20 Technology Services in advance. The zoom session will be hosted by ESC-20 Technology Services.  The LEA must provide at least 1 moderator for the Board meeting.  The moderator(s) will also be added as co-host(s) to the zoom session.
