BoardDocs Solution Enables Organization to
Save Time, Money and Dramatically Increase Effectiveness

Defiance, September 23, 2019 — Defiance City Schools is leveraging Cloud-based technology to
radically improve its governance processes while saving staff time and taxpayer dollars. The
remarkably powerful, easy-to-use service will allow the organization to maximize the effectiveness
of their board meetings with increased transparency, providing a basis for better and more open
communication with the public, while dramatically improving productivity and saving thousands of
dollars annually.
The board management solution, called BoardDocs LT, recently received two very compelling feature
upgrades for users: Policy Development and Publication, and Meeting Minutes Editing. This will
allow all BoardDocs LT subscribers to streamline the important work of Policy Governance.
Additionally, BoardDocs LT now adds the ability to edit and attach minutes to any meeting. LT
subscribers will be able to edit minutes from the Meeting Dashboard by importing the agenda and
simply using the editor. Once saved, they can then attach a minutes agenda item to a future meeting.
Additionally, BoardDocs LT will increase the amount of time members of the board have to review
agenda information, enabling them to better prepare for meetings. Through the MetaSearch feature,
members of the governing body will also have access to best practices from other governing bodies
that are using the system, allowing them to gain important knowledge about initiatives other
governing bodies have considered and implemented.
Electronic distribution will not only save time and resources, but it will also provide unprecedented
public access via the Defiance City Schools’ Web site to agenda items and other board-related
information. This process will allow interested parties to review information prior to meetings.
All documents associated with the meeting are automatically archived and can be accessed by date
or by using the system’s comprehensive Search feature.
The new board management features can be accessed via the organization’s Web site at For questions regarding the governance initiative, contact Mr. Morton,
Superintendent at 419-782-0070 or Mrs. Swisher, Treasurer at 419-782-9452.
The Grand Escape
The Grand Escape
Freshmen students participated in an escape room to become acclimated to their high school library.  Working in groups, students had a class period to make The Grand Escape.  By following clues, searching for books, and solving puzzles, students gained codes to eventually lead them to unlocking the combination lock, thus making their escape.  Not only did they develop skills in using the online catalog and locating a variety of books, they also utilized skills in communication, teamwork, collaboration, and problem-solving. 
 Defiance City Schools will be using Study Sync in our English/Language Arts classes (grades 6-12).  Please click on the following link to access information regarding Study Sync.
