Referred Measure 4A Information

Re-organization of the Board of Education 

Plan to modify the director district plan of representation for the Moffat County RE-1 School District with a combined director district and at-large plan of representation.

At the present time, the Moffat County RE-1 School District is organized into 7 director districts. One member of the Board of Education resides within each of these districts, although each Board member is elected in accordance with state law by a vote of all the electors in the District. A description of the boundaries of each director district is on file in the District's administrative office and is available for public inspection.

The Board of Education believes it is beneficial to maintain a certain number of director districts to assure that there is  geographic diversity on the Board. However, there are times when director districts actually hinder interested candidates from running for the board. State law allows boards of education to change the plan of representation to a combined director district and at-large plan, with voter approval.

The Board of Education, in accordance with Colorado law at C.R.S 22-31-105 (6), proposes to modify the director district plan of representation by reducing the number of director districts from 7 to 5 and replacing those districts with 2 at-large directors. The Board, by a motion adopted at its June 28, 2018 meeting, will submit this proposed change in the plan of representation to the registered electors of the school district at the election on November 6, 2018. The revised director district boundaries are below.

The ballot question will ask registered electors to either vote in favor of or against the proposed combined director district and at-large plan of representation. The District shall cause notice of this ballot question to be published in accordance with state law.

If the majority of the votes cast at the election are for the proposed combined director district and at-large plan of representation, the plan shall become effective upon the canvass of election returns. Subsequent vacancies and the election of school directors at any subsequent regular biennial school election shall be in accordance with the combined plan.

If the majority of the votes cast at the election are against the proposed combined plan of representation, the school directors shall continue to be elected or appointed as provided under the existing director district plan of representation.

This proposal shall have no effect on the length of terms of office of the school directors.
