[See Editor’s Note](February 2020) Filming request asking Sunshine Request to live stream Asheville City Schools BOE meetings

Hello Sunshine Request,

I am requesting that your organization broadcast video recording of Asheville City Schools Board of Education meetings. I believe the next meeting is March 2, 2020 at the Edington Education and Career Center at 5:00 pm.

I know this is not a FOIA, but it is the only way I could figure out to make the request!

Thank you.

[Editor's Note: The sender indicated in the start date / end date section of the form on our site that the timeline for this information should include 02/18/20 - 02/31/20].

Editor’s Note: Sunshine Request makes no claim as to the veracity of any statements or information contained in any of the requests, or public records, we receive.

Editor’s Note 02/20/20: The above submission has been marked as “Completed.”

To our knowledge, ACS has been live streaming and archiving their BOE meetings on their Facebook page over the past year. The most recent video was streamed by ACS on 02/03/20. Search for the word “board”, here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/AVLCitySchools/videos

In response to the above submission (as well as other messages we’ve received) asking for filming coverage, on 02/19/20 we reached out to Shaunda Sandford (Board Chair Asheville City Schools) to confirm whether ACS will continue to post video / livestream their BOE meetings online. We also asked that they confirm if they will be recording / streaming the March 2nd, 2020 meeting at the Edington Center. Our questions were forwarded to (Executive Director of Communications) Ashley-Michelle Thublin, who will get back to us as soon as she is able.

If ACS will not be streaming additional BEO meetings and/or the March 02 meeting, we will determine whether the Sunshine Request Team is available to cover those meetings, and will make a post about this on our Facebook page once a decision has been made. For now, please keep track of ACS’s videos at https://www.facebook.com/pg/AVLCitySchools/videos, or their BEO schedule at https://www.ashevillecityschools.net/domain/10..
