Upcoming Event -- Proposed Amendments to the SBNC Resolution Information Session and Consensus Meeting

Monday, December 16, 2019
9 a.m. at Village Hall, 3rd Floor Meeting Room

LWVS will hold a general membership information session regarding the proposed amendments to the School Board Nominating Committee Resolution. Jordan Copeland, current chair of the Joint Committee, will be present to answer questions. All members of the public are welcome to attend.

The SBNC Joint Committee is the body that reviews and proposes amendments to the SBNC Resolution. The SBNC Administrative Committee is the body that solicits candidates for SBNC and runs the SBNC election and referendum on the amendments, if any. The SBNC is the body that vets applicants and nominates the proposed slate for the Scarsdale Board of Education. The School Board Nominating Committee Resolution is the document that governs the School District's non-partisan election system.

A consensus discussion will immediately follow the information session for purposes of making recommendations to the Joint Committee. Only League members may be present for the consensus discussion.
