For future meeting dates and more information, visit the board's website at www.dsbn.edu.on.ca — click on the Accommodation Review button and then East Welland. Kartasinski said those looking to see the process in completion can view the Niagara-on-the-Lake accommodation review online that was recently wrapped up.I think this is a fantastic idea that should be used by every school board for every accommodation review. It should even be expanded, so that any committee-member questions and such are posted online as well. I've been to a few meetings -- and I imagine this is repeated elsewhere -- where the committee members and staff are passing around information, answers to questions, etc. and the rest of us in the audience sit there stumped.
A “parking lot” has been set up online. Anyone with questions about the accommodation review can post it on the parking lot, and expect a timely answer also to be posted online.
Each Friday all answers are collected and answered, she said.
All information from the parking lot is printed and given to all members of the committee for future reference.
It's a great measure of responsiveness and accountability for the DSBN to take this step. Is anyone aware of any other board doing something similar?
