School Board going paperless
Placeholder Image
The Warren County Board of Education has voted to go paperless, something that is expected to save time and money.Beginning with the next regular meeting, the mountains of paperwork that usually fill the table in the board room at the central office should be gone. All the information contained in the hundreds of pages in documents usually given to the six members of the School Board will be contained in laptop computers.“It’s all going to be on laptops,” said Director of Schools Bobby Cox, noting this is the first step in a broader move to go paperless in as many areas as possible.“We’re killing less trees this way,” Cox said after the board voted unanimously to do away with printed copies of agendas for the monthly board meetings. “We are also going to be saving quite a bit of money by cutting down on paper costs.”The laptops will be provided to the board members by the school system but will remain the property of the schools.
