Editorial: Cherry Creek schools can shine a light on itself by streaming meetings

Aurora Sentinel: This perfectly describes a fixable community problem: Cherry Creek schools is the largest district in Colorado that does not livestream or broadcast its school board meetings.

If you’re like many parents, students, teachers and taxpayers who want to know what issues the school district is facing and what elected leaders and top administrators are doing about them, the lack of watching from home is a real problem.

School districts for Denver, Douglas County, Jefferson County, Aurora and bevy of smaller and rural school districts livestream, broadcast or at least video record school board meetings. It’s not just for the convenience of school district stakeholders, it’s often a necessity for those interested enough in all or part of a school board meeting to observe what takes place — and in the best scenario — even participate in the meeting remotely.
