Statement on the vote to amend the Section One constitution
With the passing of a Friday, Dec. 7, closing date for voting on proposed amendments to the Section One constitution, the section’s ad hoc Constitution Committee will continue to seek input from member districts.
We are pleased with the progress of the collaborative process to date as well as the support displayed by a majority of member districts that voted in favor of the proposed amendments. That support, while falling short of the supermajority necessary to enact changes, demonstrates that the process is moving in the right direction. The committee continues to strive to meet the needs and expectations of our district partners.
The Constitution Committee will continue to meet as needed to collaborate with, and hear feedback directly from, district stakeholders. Upon the receipt of this information, the committee will reconvene and consider the specific, detailed input that is needed. The Constitution Committee will present member schools with a revised document this winter for a new ballot referendum.
