Using Zoom Webinar to hold a public meeting

We've been teaching many districts how to set up  Zoom Webinar for holding remote public meetings. We've gathered everything we know into one document to share with the community, and recorded a webinar of our mock public meeting using Zoom Webinar.

Use Streamline Portal (our intranet tool) for free during the crisis

Published March 31, 2020

We recently launched a beta of Streamline Portal - the password-protected online intranet tool for special districts.

Think of it like Streamline Web, behind a sign in. Members can be set up as view-only, site contributors, or administrators. Content can be shared with your entire team, remotely.

Best of all, it's as simple to use as our original public-facing website tool, and also includes unlimited support if you get stuck.

Free forum to help special districts collaborate

Published March 17, 2020

We've created a space for special districts to collaborate with each other - discuss topics particular to your state, your type of district, or challenges you face (like remote meetings).

We feel very strongly that what you do is important, and we want to make it easy for you to speak with each other about the things that matter most, in a space that is dedicated just for you.

We're calling it Streamline Tribes, and it will be free to you for as long as it's helpful. Bring your tribe and join us!
