The New Rochelle Board of Education has begun to implement the law originally drafted by New York State Assemblywoman Amy Paulin by publishing documents presented during meetings on the district's web site.
Paul Costiglio, spokesman for the district, tells Talk of the Sound the intent is to publish all the documents they get before the meeting in advance and then add additional documents as they get them.
The law went into effect on February 1, 2012.
The first New Rochelle Board of Education meeting under the new policy was held February 7, 2012.
Residents can now access all of the draft resolutions reviewed at board meetings as well as presentations and reports made by staff. There was a presentation by Dr. Rhonda Jones during the meeting. Costiglio says he will add that document shortly.
