Starting this fall, Hagerstown Junior College plans to use Channel 6 for long-distance learning telecasts on Tuesday evenings, said Andrew McMahon, the school system's assistant superintendent for administration.
To avoid a conflict, the school board earlier this month tentatively voted to switch meeting dates to the first and third Wednesdays of each month.
But that night might conflict with other community meetings, Board President B. Marie Byers said.
Byers suggested the school board look into getting its own cable channel assigned.
Meanwhile, she proposed keeping the meetings on Tuesday nights and having them taped for broadcast during an available time slot or slots later in the week, possibly on Wednesdays and Sundays.
The broadcast dates and times could be published in the newspaper along with the meeting agenda, Byers said.
Considering how hard it is for all five school board members to find common time for meetings, board member Doris J. Nipps said she thought it would be wise to keep meeting on Tuesday nights if that suited everyone. The other four members agreed.
Beginning in September, however, the board will meet on the first and third Tuesday of each month instead of on the second and fourth Tuesday, as it has been.
