Yonkers Board of Education Holds First Public Meeting Via Video Conferencing
(Yonkers, NY) Yonkers Board of Education President Rev. Steve Lopez opened the Monday, March 23, 2020 Special Meeting of the Board of Education noting, “…we are holding our meeting via video conference via Zoom.” This Special Meeting was the first video conference format used by the Trustees. “The COVID-19 pandemic has challenged public education to rethink and redesign the public’s accessibility to public meetings,” said Rev. Lopez. “Like school districts across the country, we are confronting the potential for a prolonged inability to hold onsite public meetings. Video conferencing offers public access.”
Yonkers Board of Education agendas, actions and webcasts are available to the public on the District’s website, yonkerspublicscshools.org in the Board of Education section. Future video conferencing meetings will be available to the public live.
The first ever video conference is available on demand. (Link will open in a separate window)
