No more paper agendas, Browning tells Pasco School Board



The Pasco County school district started publishing its School Board agendas online two years ago.

Three board members nonetheless have insisted on receiving paper copies, sometimes reaching into hundreds of pages, for each bi-weekly meeting.

That's about to end. Superintendent Kurt Browning has informed the board that, from now on, his staff won't be printing, collating and delivering hard copies. If the board members still want to hold and highlight the documents, for which the district charges the general public 15 cents per page, they'll have to use their own paper and printers. 

In the meantime, the staff will re-teach the board how to take full advantage of the e-agenda. They've scheduled a workshop to review all the functions, such as making electronic notes, for 4 p.m. Tuesday, before the regular board meeting. Bring your laptop if you're planning to attend.
