The most important question to ask is why doesn't Fox post Board Member Contact Information, School District Financials and Board Meeting Information Packets on their website? Other school districts make this information available to their patrons. By not posting this information or by making the information difficult to obtain gives the impression that our school board is hiding things from the public.
How do I know that it is difficult to obtain the information?
I have made multiple requests over the last couple of years and have been told that it's not online and that I would have to pay 10 cents per page for the information. School board meeting packet information has been stored in PDF format since at least April 2010 as I now have copies of them. It wasn't until the board members started using tablet computers at the December 2011 school board meeting to view the board meeting information packets that I was able to counter our superintendent's claims that I would have to pay for paper copies of those documents referencing Missouri Sunshine Law. The district has been posting board meeting minutes online in PDF format since 2002 so it is a bit difficult to believe that it board meeting information packets didn't exist prior to 2010 as I have been told.
