HNAIC explains the importance of adding a seat to ASBA Board of Directors

Your ASBA Board of Directors believes a change is long overdue

我们希望你能记25分th anniversary of the Hispanic Native American Indian Caucus by voting yes on a change to the ASBA bylaws to create a seat on the ASBA Board of Directors so that a Hispanic AND a Native American representative can serve at the same time.

In 1996, a group of Arizona school board members gat在这里d together to form the HNAIC. Their goal was to ensure that the needs of Hispanic and Native students were known and addressed at the state level. The founders believed that representation on the 亚利桑那学校董事会365BET娱乐平台注册 Board of Directors was necessary to help achieve that goal, and through a change to the bylaws a single seat was added. It was progress, but it created a structural gap in representation that has lasted for 25 years. The seat alternates in two-year periods from a Hispanic representative to a Native American representative. 

Later this month you’ll be getting detailed information on this bylaw amendment as well as information on casting your board’s vote. We’ll go over the details at your ASBA County Meeting and we also have a webinar planned Sept. 30 to answer any questions you may have.  

投票将于9月1日开始. 营业到11月21日. Not only do we need you to participate in the vote, but we also urge you to vote yes so that no students are left behind and no community goes unrepresented.

Delegates and the County Director election process plus board agenda item

County Meetings will be held virtually so this means school boards will be voting electronically for County Director elections. It is important that school boards appoint a delegate to vote on behalf of the board in advance.

Please review the process below to minimize any questions and confusion.

  • Voting will take place electronically during the meeting.
  • Each member district board in the county is entitled to one vote.
  • Each board must appoint in advance a delegate (and an alternate, if desired) who may cast the board’s vote for County Director. If your board already named a delegate for the ASBA Delegate Assembly, that same person can remain your delegate for this vote as well. If you did not select a delegate for the Delegate Assembly or you would like to name a different delegate, please select one for the County Meeting and let ASBA know who it is no later than one week prior to your county meeting using this link below.
  • Sample agenda language for selecting your county director election delegate is below.
  • Your delegate (or alternate) must be at the meeting to vote
