Summary: HB 2668 would require junior college districts that exceed 20,000 students in the previous semester to have their governing boards post on the districts' websites the meeting agendas and supplemental information, broadcast meetings, and archive recorded meetings. Exceptions include maintaining privacy for legally certified confidential information and occurrences that take place outside of governmental control.
Analysis: HB 2668 would would make applicable state schools more accountable. This legislation gives the public accessibility to pertinent information and holds the governing boards accountable, knowing that their discussions will be open for public review. Taxpayers provide the funding for university and college operations, students attend these universities and colleges, and parents fund their students' education. This legislation would provide these stakeholders with the easier access to information discussed in the board meetings. We support HB 2668.
