• District-Based School Board Elections

  • The Pasco School District Board of Directors is changing the voting system for school board elections. Currently, all board members are elected “at large.” This means any eligible voter within the school district boundary can vote in the election of each board member. The school board is studying whether a system of district-based elections would provide a better opportunity for voters to elect the candidate of their choice in school board elections. A district-based voting system would require a school board candidate to reside within a voting district boundary and be elected only by eligible voters residing within the same voting district.

    Pasco School District is inviting community members to attend an information session to learn more about the proposed change to district-based school board elections. After a short presentation by district staff, attendees will be able to see sample maps and provide feedback on the options being considered. The same information will be presented at both sessions, so parents and community members only need to attend one session.

    1st Session: Monday, Nov. 15 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Pasco High School (Presentation in Spanish - English translation will be available).

    2nd Session: Thursday, Nov. 18 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. at Chiawana High School (Presentation in English - Spanish translation will be available).
