Release Date: 3/1/2011 11:49:25 AM

Members of the community will now be able to watch Board of Education meetings on the school system’s website beginning with the regular Board meeting on Wednesday, March 9, 2011, at 5:00 p.m.
 
All Board of Education meetings, as well as other programming on CETV Channel 21, will now be streamed live on the Carroll County Public Schools website. This will enable members of the community to watch Board meetings and CETV programs regardless of their television service provider.
 
According to Superintendent of Schools Stephen Guthrie, “This is just another step toward meeting our goal of engaging the community as much as possible. We have been working on this project for several years with limited resources and are pleased to be able to offer this feature. It is our hope that it will enable a higher percentage of our community to watch our Board meetings.”
 
In addition to streaming meetings live, the school system is working toward Video on Demand. This will enable the community to access specific archived programs whenever they wish.
 
In addition to Board of Education meetings, all CETV Channel 21 programming is being streamed live on the website. These programs include:
  • Education Matters with Superintendent Stephen Guthrie
  • Focus on Education, an interview program that highlights topics and activities taking place in the school system
  • CETV Newsmakers: On the Positive Side, a news magazine format show that highlights noteworthy students, events, and activities
