Emergency Announcement—Cable Broadcasts Cancelled
We have received notice from MATA (the Milwaukee Access Telecommunications Authority) that, due to funding cuts by the City of Milwaukee, it will cease operation as of December 14, 2017. As a result, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors' regular month meetings will no longer be broadcast on Spectrum Cable's Channel 14. Our U-Verse channel stream, however, will not be affected by this change.
In an effort to reduce waste, to increase efficiency, and to modernize its operations, as of March 2012, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors has begun its phasing in of paperless meetings. As a result, the Board has abandoned its use of paper agendas ("blue books") in favor of the Electronic School Board (ESB). ESB is an online electronic agenda that is accessible via the internet by the public 24 hours a day, seven days a week, using a standard internet browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari).
To access the online agendas, please visit https://esb.milwaukee.k12.wi.us/.
ESB also offers Really Simple Syndication (RSS), which provides an easy way for you to acess the latest postings of agendas in ESB. If you are able to subscribe to the RSS, you will receive a link to each agenda as it is published. To subscribe, click on the "Agenda List" link on the right-hand side of the ESB homepage. At the top of the agenda list will appear the RSS icon . Click on this icon and follow the directions.
Beginning in February 2015, the meetings of the Board’s committees will no longer be broadcast on WYMS radio. Instead, they will be live-streamed on the Internet via the district’s website.
The regular and special meetings of the full Board will continue to be broadcast on WYMS, as well as streamed on the Internet. The regular monthly Board meeting will also continue to be televised on Time-Warner Channel 14.
To access the live stream, please visit the Boardcast page.
You may call the Office of Board Governance at (414) 475-8284 for more information.
The Office of Board Governance is now using the City of Milwaukee's Enotify system to alert subscribers when we have published notices and agendas for School Board and committee meetings on the MPS Portal. Anyone may subscribe to the system (at no charge) online at http://city.milwaukee.gov/enotify.
Just follow the instructions on screen. The Milwaukee Board of School Directors is listed under "City Agency Meetings" on the page on which you can sign up for E-notify services. (Note that Milwaukee Public Schools is listed under "News Releases," but this will not get you the School Board notices or agendas.)
When we publish a meeting notice or agenda, we will send an email via E-notify to all subscribers with links that will give them access to the agenda and meeting notice.
