Chalkbeat--Coronavirus has upended traditional school board meetings — and put transparency to the test

It was business as usual in school board chambers across the U.S. just a few weeks ago.

Board members would take their seats. Parents, students, teachers, and curious citizens would file in, sitting or standing shoulder-to-shoulder if the evening’s agenda was meaty. During time for public comment, speakers would line up and take turns at the same microphone.   

That would be unthinkable now. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended most aspects of American life, including how the public’s business is conducted.
