Follow this link to the SBNC Administrative Committee’s summary of the proposed amendments. The amendments will appear on the ballot for voter approval at the time of the SBNC elections on Tuesday, January 11, 2022 (7-10 am, 2-9 pm at SMS Auditorium Lobby). Sarah Bell, current SBNC Administrative Committee Resolution Vice Chair, will be present to answer questions. The information session is open to the public. For purposes of the Zoom presentation and discussion, attendees are strongly encouraged to review materials in advance.

The SBNC Administrative Committee is the body that solicits candidates for SBNC, proposes amendments to the SBNC Resolution, and runs the SBNC election and referendum on the amendments, if any. The SBNC is the body that vets applicants and nominates a proposed slate of trustees for election to the Scarsdale Board of Education. The SBNC Resolution is the document that governs the school non-partisan election system.

A consensus discussion will immediately follow the information session for purposes of making recommendations to the SBNC Administrative Committee. Only League members may participate.
