Court sides with electronic docs

The state Supreme Court has required a school district to provide budget documents to a school board member in an electronic format, acknowledging the decision advances the purpose of the state’s right-to-know law.

Donna Green, a member of the Timberlane Regional school board, asked the district for the documents last year. The district said she could make an appointment to see the documents. It said it wasn’t obligated to provide them electronically. A judge agreed.

The state Supreme Court on Tuesday reversed that decision. It said there was no evidence it wasn’t “reasonably practicable” to copy the documents to electronic media, and producing electronic documents is often more efficient and cost-
effective.
