BARSTOW UNIFIED UNION SCHOOL BOARD SEEKING CHARTER CHANGE TO ADD A SEAT
You are invited to join the Barstow Unified Union School Board on Monday, October 29th at 6:00 p.m. (in the school library) for an informational meeting on a proposed amendment to the Articles of Agreement of the Barstow Unified Union School District. This Article, providing for one additional at-large director, will be submitted to voters in Chittenden and Mendon on Election Day (November 6th,2018).
Currently, Chittenden has two elected members and Mendon one elected member on the school board. There is also one “at-large” member who can be a resident from either town and is elected by both towns. The school board recognizes its high level of responsibility to provide stewardship for the school and the importance of community linkage in that stewardship. That said, the board is asking voters if a second “at-large” seat could be added to the board, allowing another resident from either town to be elected, creating a five member board.
All residents are encouraged to attend. To facilitate your attendance, food (pizza) and onsite childcare will be provided.
Please feel free to contact Deborah Singiser, Board Chair, or Jeanne Collins, RNESU Superintendent, with any questions, through the “Let’s Talk” button on the schools website. Your questions will promptly be directed to the right person.
