(Specific items of District business as listed for consideration - may include various categorical areas as the business of the District necessitates Board discussion, deliberation, and action)   

VI.1. Consideration and possible approval of one bylaw change from the ASBA.  The Board will  discuss,  consider  and give direction on voting on one bylaw  change proposal  from  the Arizona School  Boards  Association.  This  bylaw  proposal  by  the ASBA  Board of Directors  must be approved by  two-thirds of the ASBA  member  boards  to be effective.  After  discussion,  the Board will vote to give direction to  Superintendent Mike Westcott  to vote in the  manner  the board has  approved.  The following is  the bylaw  proposal  to be considered and acted upon: 

Proposal  A    With unanimous  approval  of the ASBA  Hispanic  Native America Indian Caucus  and ASBA  Board of Directors,  this  change is  being  sought by  the Hispanic-Native American Indian Caucus  (HNAIC).  It would create a seat on the ASBA  Board of Directors  so that Hispanic  and Native American interests  can be represented  simultaneously  on the board. Currently, there is  one  seat on the ASBA  Board of Directors  designated for  a representative of the HNAIC  and it alternates  every  two years  between Hispanic representation and Native American representation, creating  gaps  in representation.  By contrast, the  Black  Alliance has  a seat on the ASBA  Board of  Directors, ensuring representation on the board at all  times.  This  proposed bylaw  change also provides  the flexibility  for  the HNAIC  to split into two distinct groups  if its  members  so  choose and allows  those  groups  to change their  names  and be recognized under  the new  names. 

Presenter:  Mike Westcott
