from last month, up 22% from same period last year); Splash! School Grants (7,811 page views;

up 169% from last month, down 22% from same period last year). Governing Board Portal:

Staff is in the process of developing a Governing Board Portal to provide Board members with

easy web access to sites that are of interest or frequently visited. The Portal page will provide

quick links to items such as the budget, staff organization charts, and employment opportunities.

Board members will have easy access to the weekly media advance, news releases and daily

ClipTRACs. The District calendar, document downloads, and Governing Board meeting videos

will be simple to navigate, and during the Legislative Session timely updates will be instantly

available. The Portal is still in the development stages, and staff will be meeting one-on-one with

Board members during the coming months to demonstrate the Portal and obtain feedback to

ensure the site contains information of interest to the Board. Concurrent with this effort, District

email addresses for Board members will be rolled out on a trial basis to those who are

interested.
