High school starts live streaming of board meetings


Starting Monday night, Evanston Township High School District 202 Board of Education meetings will be streamed live on the internet and on the school’s local cable channel.

Viewers with Internet access will be able to watch live meetings, view the Board’s agenda, and access relevant documents directly from the ETHS website. Evanston residents with Comcast Cable will be able to watch live meetings on Channel 18.

The school board normally meets in regular session on the second and fourth Mondays of each month during the school year at 7:30 p.m.

Meeting schedules and information packets are also available online. Information packets will be posted the Friday before a regularly scheduled meeting.

In addition, videos of the board meetings will be archived and can be viewed over the Internet at any time on the school's new video-on-demand page.

“We are pleased to have this technology so we can provide an additional way for our community to have abundant information about ETHS,” Superintendent Eric Witherspoon said in a news release.

Evanston/Skokie School District 65 and the Evanston City Council already live-stream meeting video over the internet from the Evanston Community Television website.

Unfortunately for viewers trying to keep track of what's happening, all three local governmental entities frequently meet at the same time — as will be the case Monday night.
