MASON CITY – A new web page offered by the Mason City school district offers unprecedented access to the the school board.

In a new development, the district alerted local media that it is using a new software platform for publishing and publicizing Board of Education information.

This site is “under construction” but already, the district has done something it has never done before: Allow the public to know the email addresses of school board members. This is a common practice for most publicly-elected officials, but was never posted on the district’s web sites previously.

“What a magnanimous gesture by the school district,” one Mason City voter and taxpayer told NIT. “I mean, gosh. I always wanted to ask those people questions, but I never know how to reach them since they kept their contact information a secret. I might just send off a few emails and seek some information sometime, maybe even offer a little feedback.”

The site also shows bio information for the school board members in addition to board meeting agendas.

The district said it is working to load information to the various links available on the web page. This new web page will have “information about board meetings” the district said in a news release.  Information about Monday night’s meeting is posted there already.

The page is available here.

Email addresses of current MC School District Board members:

Robert Thoms President
Janna Arndt Director
Tim Becker Director
Mark Dodd Vice President
Darshini Jayawardena Director
Paula Recinos Director
Scott Warren Director
