Rumor has it that Elmbrook may discontinue cable broadcasts of BOE meetings, as they aren't sure anyone watches. I cannot recall who told me this several weeks ago, but now I see there is an item scrolling at the top of the district home page to the effect of: please tell us if you like the broadcasts.If you do, this is probably the time to let them know. I certainly value them.
Someone told me that Elmbrook is thinking of discontinuing their cable TV broadcasts. Is this true?
What ever happened to the idea that Elmbrook would just post the school board meetings on the internet like Wauwatosa does?
Thanks,Here is my reply: (Emphasis mine)
Thank you for contacting Elmbrook Schools. We are pleased that you are interested in how we make board meetings available for public viewing.At this time, there is no plan to discontinue broadcasting the meetings on cable channels 13 and 96. We will continue to do this.We do not record the meetings digitally at this time, therefore they are not posted on the web. It may be an option in the future for the district.If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me at 262-781-3030 ext. 1176, or firstname.lastname@example.org.Thanks again!Melinda Mueller

Thank you, Melinda. It would be great to have the meetings on the internet. Not everyone has cable TV. Plus, viewers could then watch at any time.Kyle
