Each year, the Joint Committee of the Scarsdale School Board Nominating Committee convenes to consider whether to make changes to its Resolution after the SBNC election. This year, there are ten proposed amendments. Copies of the proposed amendments are available on the SBNC website at: http://scarsdalesbnc.com/press/. Hard copies will also be made available at the Reference Desk of the Scarsdale Library and in the brochure racks in the lobby of Village Hall.
All Scarsdale residents are invited to a public meeting to discuss these changes on Wednesday, December 5, 2012 at 8:00 pm in the Scott Room at the Scarsdale Public Library. SBNC candidates are also encouraged to attend this meeting to learn more about how the SBNC works.
After receiving public comment on the changes to the Resolution, the Joint Committee will finalize the language for its proposed amendments by December 15, 2012. The election to vote on the amendments, and to vote for this year's SBNC members, will be on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 in the Scarsdale Middle School auditorium lobby from 7:00am-10:00am and also from 2:00pm to 9:00pm.
We urge members of the community to consider these amendments and, most importantly, to vote in the election on January 16, 2013.
The School Board Nominating Committee is a non-partisan organization made up of 6 residents from each of the 5 elementary school neighborhoods. The SBNC meets each year to review and propose candidates for the Scarsdale School Board election. The Joint Committee of the SBNC is made up of residents who have already served three years on the SBNC in addition to representatives from various community organizations. The Joint Committee's focus is on running the annual election that ultimately creates the SBNC.
