Presentation Template for Board Meetings

Giving a Presentation to the Board of Education?

Please use our Google Slide template: The goal of this template is to provide space for Closed Captioning Services (steno captioning) during the Live Meeting on our Streaming and TV services.

Please contact Barth Paine with any feedback/issues around the template files and Patty Sandoval with any meeting issues for loading the presentation. Do not put any text/graphics on the lower area.


Too Much Text - PowerPoint will scale down (squeeze) your text to fit on the slide - but this is not always the best answer. Try to keep your font size above 20 - you can check by selecting the text after you paste. If you have more content add a slide don't cram it on one page - viewers will not see the words well and they will not get your point.

Our meeting format is in HD or a 16:9 ratio - Closed Captioning text covers the lower part of the screen. Limit the number of slides (around 10). Include only essential information. Use a large contrasting readable font (24 - no smaller than 16). Avoid (flashy) transitions. Complex tables can have the title to the left of the data - if needed. Simplify.
