Procedure 1105 - DIRECTOR DISTRICT BOUNDARIES

When reconfiguring director districts, the newly established director districts shall meet the following criteria:

  1. The districts shall be as nearly as possible equal in population;
  2. The districts shall be as compact as possible and consist of geographically contiguous area;
  3. The districts shall not favor or disfavor any racial group or political party; and
  4. The districts shall as much as possible coincide with natural boundaries and existing communities.

At least one week before the Board of Directors considers adoption of the plan of director districts, the Board shall hold a public hearing on the plan. Within thirty days of adoption of the plan of director districts, the legal descriptions and maps depicting the director districts shall be submitted to the county auditor.  If the plan is submitted after the fourth Monday in June of an odd-numbered year, the plan will not take effect until the following year. Any registered voter in the district may challenge the plan within 45 days of its adoption by requesting the superior court review the plan for compliance with the four criteria listed above.

Dissolution of Director Districts: If the district desires to dissolve director districts and create a combination of director districts and at-large districts, the Board of Directors will submit a resolution adopted by the board or a petition signed by 20% of the registered voters to the educational service district. The resolution or petition will request dissolution of the existing director districts. If the ballot measure is approved, the board will reconfigure the existing districts to consist of three director districts and two at-large districts. As the current board members terms expire, their successors will be elected according to the approved redistricting.

Transfer of District Property:The board will submit a written notice of intent to transfer property to the affected school director district(s). The written notice of intent to transfer will include a request that the affected district(s) respond in writing acknowledging receipt of the notice, and explaining their position regarding the proposed transfer.

The board will submit written notice of the intent to transfer property to all registered voters residing in the area proposed to be transferred. The notice must include date, time, and place of a public hearing at which the voters can comment on the proposed transfer of property. The board will compile and review responses from the affected school district(s) and all comments received from member of the public regarding the transfer prior to signing the formal board petition requesting the transfer.
