New Program Enables District to Save Time, Money and Increase Effectiveness


NAUGATUCK, Conn.; Sept. 29, 2016 — The Naugatuck Board of Education is leveraging the power of the Internet to radically improve the governance process while saving time, taxpayer dollars and the environment. This new initiative will replace the old and costly method of compiling, printing, binding, and distributing paper agenda packets by hand with the online program BoardDocs.


The program, used by school districts throughout the country, makes meeting agendas and supporting documents available on the Internet. The District is now able to distribute documents associated with board meetings quickly and in real time to people who are unable to physically attend the monthly meetings but can follow along online.


This process will also allow interested parties to review information prior to board meetings. After the meeting, individuals can review the agenda items and see action details, complete with voting results. All documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by meeting date or the system’s comprehensive search feature.


The Board of Education will also use the BoardDocs technology to publish its policies and procedures online for the public to easily view, which will provide access to the most current and historical meeting information immediately and drastically reduce the expense of distributing policies and procedures.


The Board introduced the new program at the September meeting. The agenda and all item details are available at The public is invited to attend the next meeting, Oct. 13, 2016, at 7 p.m. either at the Board of Education meeting room or online through the Naugatuck Public Schools website.
