Access to zoom support for Board Meetings

 

Point of Contact: Michael Williams

 

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.

Note: Gov. Abbott has relaxed the requirement for a toll-free number on open meetings. The suspension of certain requirements now allows open meeting notices to include a toll-free dial-in number or a free videoconference link and an electronic agenda packet. The meeting agenda can be posted on the school website to ensure public access. A registration requirement to access the Zoom link would still be within the law since the website is accessible to all attendees.
