The Upper Merion Area School District is pleased to announce that it is transitioning to the BoardDocs platform. BoardDocs will leverage the power of the Internet to radically improve the governance process while saving time, taxpayer dollars, and the environment. This new BoardDocs initiative will replace the old and costly method of compiling, printing, binding and distributing paper agenda packets by hand. The remarkably powerful, easy-to-use solution, will enable the Upper Merion Area School District to maximize the effectiveness of their board meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open communication with the public, while dramatically increasing productivity.

Electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide unprecedented public access via the UMASD BoardDocs Web site to agenda items and other school board related information. This process will allow interested parties to review information prior to board meetings. After the meeting, individuals can review the agenda items and see what action the board directors took, complete with voting results. All documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by meeting date or by using the system’s comprehensive search feature.
