Del. School Boards Cool on Bill to Record Meetings

Posted:

DOVER, Del. (AP)- Some lawmakers in Delaware want to require school boards to post recordings of their meetings online to make them more transparent, but school officials are worried about the cost.

A bill in the state House would require every public school board to keep audio recordings of every meeting and post them online within seven business days.

Susan Francis, executive director of the Delaware School Boards Association, says her group is worried about the requirement being an unfunded mandate.

Francis says there are worries about costs for new equipment and overtime for staff to make the recordings. But she says her group isn't necessarily opposed to the bill.

Rep. Deborah Hudson, the bill's sponsor, says recording a meeting does not require expensive equipment.
