(Griswold) The Griswold School Board will decide whether or not they want to change the way they are elected during their April 16, school board meeting. Schools Superintendent Dana Kunze, says after every census the board has to check whether or not their district remain balanced. At the same time they have the option to change how they are elected.
“We are considering a change from a 7-member board, each with their own district to four districts and 3-at-large candidates,” stated Kunze. Which should make it easier to recruit new candidates?
“But if you get a certain geographical area to draw from, sometime it gets very hard to find someone that’s willing to run,” said Kunze. “And it is certainly hard to find enough candidates to have a contest, so we hope this helps us recruit people for the board.”
The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m., Monday April 16, to be held in the Central Office Board Room, Middle School/High School Building.
It starts with a public hearing on the Director Districts, District Maps and method of Election. A resolution on this will be held later on the meeting.
