Evaluation of Pennsylvania School District Websites
Our friends at the Sam Adams Alliance have reviewed websites from all 501 school districts in Pennsylvania on their Sunshine Review wiki. They found that there is a long way to go in providing transparency to citizens. As a wiki this site is user-driven, there is plenty of need for average citizens to review how open their own school district, county, or city governments are.
Our School Board Transparency project (which includes both a blog highlighting best practices and a guide on Sunshine Review) is an effort to help school boards and citizens remove some of the mystery in contract negotiations.
