District Meetings at Berrien RESA
Another type of meeting is the type of meeting we are focusing on for Green Meeting Month: our districts coming to our location for meetings.
Let’s see how much time and mileage it costs for all fourteen districts to send someone to a meeting at Berrien RESA. These calculations are for one direction and are rough estimates.
|Benton Harbor||30 min||15|
|Berrien Springs||2 min||2|
|Eau Claire||10 min||4|
|New Buffalo||45 min||28|
|River Valley||40 min||25|
|St. Joseph||25 min||15|
|Totals||about 6 hours||211 miles; $116 / one way|
If everyone got comfortable with videoconferencing at their own site, we could save 12 hours and over $200 for each meeting that met over videoconferencing! Multiple that by the number of meetings and 10 months in the school year and it adds up quickly!
