Superintendent Marvin Williams discusses Re-Districting options with Board Member Crystal Sproull
The Polk School District Board of Education met in special session on Tuesday Night to discuss and consider Redistricting. State Senator Bill Heath was in attendance to provide expertise on the legislative requirements that Redistricting would bring.
Recent census data, and the threat of a lawsuit, has required the Board to take a look at how the county map is divided among board members.
The current board seats 9 members and the vote will be to stay at 9 members with new districts that provide equal representation or to go to a 7 member board with equal representation.
The public will have several opportunities to provide input on this subject. A town hall meeting will be held to discuss the options votes on October 25 at 10am and 6pm. The board will then vote at the regularly scheduled board meeting on November 8. However, there will be a public input meeting from 5:30 until the meeting begins.
On November 15, there will be a second town hall meeting with Senator Bill Heath to discuss the final decision that will go before legislation.
