<p>WHEREAS: Cambridge Public Schools (CPS) only offers printed versions of high school transcripts for former students and electronic copies to current students to send colleges, universities, and employers; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: Many former students may not have time or access to free technology in order to make copies, scan, and upload or mail transcripts; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: User-friendly online services allow students to receive an electronic copy of their transcript to send to as many places as they would like; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: E-transcript delivery services allow students to have a PDF file of their transcript and avoid requesting from CPS each time; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: E-transcript delivery services will make students' lives easier and will significantly cut work time for employees coordinating handling said transcript logistics; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: E-transcript delivery services offer free professional training on how to use their software and allow for other record digitization outside of transcripts; and</p> <p>WHEREAS: An e-transcript delivery service would likely be more cost effective and environmentally conscious than having paper and ink printed hard-copy transcripts, creating less cost-burden on both the school and the students; now therefore be it</p> <p>RESOLVED: That CPS records staff and relevant others attend necessary training from expert staff on e-transcript delivery services; and be it further</p> <p>RESOLVED: That CPS commits to using an e-transcript delivery service to cut cost and effort burdens placed on both former and current students trying to pursue post-secondary options.</p>
