What is a good CBOC Website?

The Education Code 15280 (b) requires the CBOC documents to be posted on a website that the district maintains. 

Education Code Section 15280.  

“(b) … Minutes of the proceedings of the citizens’ oversight committee and all documents received and reports issued shall be a matter of public record and be made available on an Internet Web site maintained by the district districts governing board.”
