If the Governing Board has voted to implement an alternative election system for the election of Governing Board members, has the Board voted to divide the school district into as many single member districts as there are Governing Board members or to implement only an election method that is consistent with Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (42 United States Code Section 1973).

A school district that has implemented an alternative election system for the election of Governing Board members may continue to elect Governing Board members using the alternative election system even if the average daily membership or the percentage of minority pupils enrolled in the district falls below the levels prescribed.

If the Governing Board of a school district has implemented a single member district election system, has the system been implemented as follows?

1. The Governing Board has defined the boundaries of the single member district so that the single member districts are as nearly equal in population as is practicable, except that if the school district lies in part of each of two or more counties, at least one single member district may be entirely within each of the counties comprising the school district if this district design is consistent with the obligation to equalize the population among single member districts.

2. The boundaries of the single member district have followed election precinct boundary lines, as far as practicable, in order to avoid further segmentation of precincts.

3. A number has been assigned to each of the new single member districts in ascending order according to the percentage of the district's minority population in each single member district.

4. As the terms of the Governing Board members who were elected at large expire, the member has been replaced by members who are elected from the single member districts in ascending order of single member district number.

If the Governing Board has voted to implement any other alternative election system for the election of Governing Board members, has the implementation of the system been approved by the United States Justice Department?

Ars†15-0447 offer of instruction in high school subjects by common school districts; limitations

The State Board of Education may grant permission to the Governing Board of a common school district to offer instruction in high school subjects, grades nine through twelve, except that the State Board shall not grant permission if the qualified electors of a common school district have voted against the formation of a high school district within the last five years. However, if permission has been granted:

1. Does the Governing Board cease to offer instruction in high school subjects at the end of the current year following a vote against the formation of a high school district?

2. Is the enrollment of pupils in grades nine through twelve deemed to be enrollment in high school, and for the purposes of computing the base support level, is the support level weight for high school districts used?

3. Does the Governing Board provide a certificate of high school graduation to pupils who successfully complete a prescribed course of study in grades nine through twelve?

[ ] Yes [ ]No

Ars†15-0448 formation of unified school district; board membership; budget

Is formation of a unified school district from one or more common school districts and a high school district with coterminous or overlapping boundaries done by resolutions approved by the governing boards of the unifying school districts and certification of approval by such governing boards to the county school superintendent?

Upon formation of the unified school district does the governing board consist of the members of the former school district governing boards and do they hold office until January 1 following the first general election after formation of the district.

Does the governing board of the new unified school district prepare a budget , policies and curricula for the new district and does the new district ensure that the base compensation of each teacher for the first year of operation not be lower than the previous year of the previous district?

[ ] Yes [ ]No

Ars†15-0460 change of school district boundaries

Does the Governing Board, in conjunction with the Governing Board of the adjacent district, authorize minor boundary adjustments to both districts only if all of the following are true?

1. The two adjacent common, union or unified school districts have not previously made a minor boundary adjustment pursuant to this subsection.

2. A majority of the electors within the geographic boundaries of a portion of a school district, as specified in the petition, present a petition to the Governing Boards of both the district in which the petitioners currently reside and the district to which the petitioners desire to be annexed. The petition shall set forth the boundaries of the portion of the district to be annexed.

3. A majority of the members of the Governing Boards of each district approve the minor boundary adjustment.

4. The boundary adjustment would result in the transfer of no more than one and one-half percent of the student count of the district from which the pupils will transfer.

5. The boundary adjustment would not result in the transfer of any school buildings or equipment or furnishings from one school district to the other.

6. No member of the Governing Board of the school district to be diminished is a resident of the territory that is being transferred to the adjacent school district.

7. The Governing Boards of the school districts have agreed on a means to satisfy any liabilities.

If a majority of the members of the Governing Boards of both districts approved the petitions, are the petitions transmitted with the endorsements of the Governing Boards to the County School Superintendent?
