How to Access Board of Education Meeting Livestreams

In light of the COVID-19 panemic and the closure of school, Board of Education meetings are taking place via remote videoconference only with a livestream for the public at this time.

The web address for the livestream will be publicized before each meeting. The livestream requires a username and password, which will not change:

  • The username is: livestream@niskyschools.org
  • The password is: Nisky123

We will open up the livestream five minutes prior to each meeting.

More specific directions, including screenshots, are available below. Please note that if you are logged in to another Google account (other than a niskyschools.org account) you will need to “switch” to the livestream@niskyschools.org account. For instructions on how to do this, please see below or check here.

Meeting agendas are available on Niskayuna BoardDocs. A recording and transcript of the meeting will be made available on BoardDocs.

Given the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, we plan to use videoconference/livestream only for Board of Education meetings for the time being. This approach is consistent with the Governor’s executive order from March 13.

There will be no public comment portion of meetings at this time. Those who would like to share comments for the record can e-mail publiccomment@niskyschools.org.

Information about how to access each meeting will be provided to the community in advance.
