Televised BOE Meetings By 2013 Schools Chief's Goal

New Schools Superintendent Nick Markarian said he would like to see school board meetings televised by around January.

It's been an idea that's been kicked around for years, but as one of his goals during on Monday said he would like for Bernards Board of Education meetings to be televised starting by around January.

Markarian explained after the meeting that he isn't necessarily seeking initially to have the meetings televised live on the local Cablevision access channel. The Township Committee has been broadcasting its meetings live on Cablevision for several years, and streams committee and Planning Board meetings live through the township website.

"We are hoping to get a recording aired within 48 to 72 hours, not necessarily live," Markarian said after the meeting.

He said school officials already have consulted with the township for guidance. But he said the school website is not ready to accommodate streaming meetings lives.

During the meeting, Markarian said the school district might seek the assistance of students in filming the meetings.

Later, he said that proper sound is a major concern, more than camera work.

"It's not going to be ESPN/HDTV," he commented.

This can be easily live streamed right now -all that is needed would be the live stream camera a couple of hundred bucks at most-and patch the sound in with a wireless mike system. The internet wi fi is up and running http://www.click2stream.com/

I work at the Ridge PAC. We are able to stream the meetings online, live, with all of our current equipment. No need for any plan or new purchases. Nobody has contacted me personally about this, but I will be in contact with the Board of Ed. because this can be done extremely easily.
