Beginning this week, the Baltimore County school system will begin live-streaming its bi-weekly school board meetings on its website, in part for the public's convenience but also to continue fulfilling a pledge to be more transparent, officials said.
The meetings, normally held the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, can be watched here. The first meeting of the month starts at 7:00 p.m. The second meeting each month, typically a work session, begins at 6:30 p.m.
"The Board has pledged transparency and open communication with the public in the conduct of its business," the county's Board President Lawrence E. Schmidt said in a release from the school system. "To fulfill that pledge, I am pleased that our meetings will be broadcast live so that the BCPS community of parents, students, teachers, and staff will have immediate access to the Board's proceedings and business."
