Letter writer commends East Penn School District for finally approving video taping meetings.

Emmaus/East Penn School District

 

Dear Editor of the Lehigh Valley Commentator,

 

I am happy to write this letter to inform the Lehigh Valley Parents of the East Penn School District of the School Board’s decision to Video the Monday Night Board meetings.

 

They will be available on Utube 48 hours after the meeting. This will enable parents to view the meetings from their homes rather than having to go out at night to another meeting after a long day at work,  Parents are already spread thin and need to help their children prepare for their next day at school, prepare a dinner and get themselves ready for work the next day.  Single parents are even less able to go out to a meeting at night because of having to find child care for the children when they leave.

 

This is also a way for the Board to be more transparent and for the journalist at the meetings to be more accountable and accurate in their reporting of the meeting decisions and discussions. This has not always been the case. Opinion rather than journalistic reporting has often clouded the actual happenings.

 

For years, the Board has been approached to do this, and I have been one of those who addressed the Board to have the meetings video taped. Lynn Donches, a former East Penn Board member and her husband, John has also repeatedly addressed the Board to do so as well. John often took it upon himself to video those meetings.  Former Board Member Carol Allen, was another Board member who requested the meetings be video taped to no avail.

Lynn Donches           Carol Allen             Dr. Ziad Munson

Now we hear that Dr.Ziad Munson is the one who has requested the Board to have those videos made public. Regardless of who gets the credit for having this unanimously approved by the Board, with the exception of Mr. Ballard, we as concerned citizens of the East Penn School District greatly appreciate the decision to have these meetings available to the public.
