Because the school district failed to meet existing ADA requirements, all of the archived meeting videos have been removed from the district’s website. According to the district, the videos have not been made ADA-compliant by closed-captioning them because it costs too much.

The rest of us know how silly that sounds. They could start with just 2018, which doesn’t cost much at all but they don’t want to.

They have lots of your money for massive legal fees, but nothing for transparency.

They have lots of money – tons of it – for consultants but nothing for transparency.

They have lots of money for fixing bad mistakes such as draining the Estancia pool and erecting, then removing the Estancia poles, but nothing for transparency.

But, as you know, there is a workaround for everything. Starting with the meeting on December 19, 2017, the meeting videos are available on YouTube via this link:

This is not a channel sponsored by the district, it is a channel sponsored by transparency.
