Upgrade School Board Meetings with Request-to-Speak

In the realm of school board meetings, effective communication and community engagement are paramount. Enter request-to-speak (RTS) technology, transforming the landscape of school board meetings by fostering inclusive participation and streamlined discussions.

What is request-to-speak for school board meetings?

Request-to-speak for school board meetings is a revolutionary technological solution that facilitates organized and fair engagement. It allows school members to skip the hand-waving and interruptions, because they can request a turn to speak electronically and be added to a speaker queue automatically.

The Benefit of Request-to-Speak in School Board Meetings

1. Streamlined Participation: With the OpenMeeting RTS system, school board members tap a button on their tablets to request to speak. Their requests are automatically added to a speaker queue to be recognized (most commonly, in order of the requests).

4. Effective Time Management: Time allocation for speakers becomes streamlined, preventing meetings from running over schedule while ensuring important topics receive due attention.

Incorporating request-to-speak into school board meetings elevates the quality of discussions, boosts efficiency, and strengthens governance. Its ability to manage participation, improve structure, enhance accessibility, manage time efficiently, and promote transparency makes it indispensable.
