Selah School District Proposes Reapportionment of Director Districts
In an effort to better facilitate future citizen participation as board members, the Selah School District is proposing to reapportion its existing director districts from five into three, in order to establish two at-large positions.
In its proposal, the District seeks to dissolve the current five director area structure, create three new evenly distributed director districts, and then create two at-large board positions where members can reside from anywhere within the Selah School District boundaries. The at-large board position model is one that several districts in the state, as well as some neighboring districts, utilize in order to solicit patron participation.
The reapportionment measure will be placed on the February 14, 2017 ballot for voters to approve.
