Nominations for the School Board and Budget and Finance Committee are happening now! Complete the ONLINE NOMINATION FORM by 11:59 p.m. on January 31, 2021. Be sure to seek permission from each person you nominate. You may nominate yourself. If more candidates are needed, the Nominating Team will call on potential candidates.


Budget and Finance Committee Nominations:

Open seats for the Budget and Finance Committee are for three years (June 2021-June 2024). There is one (1) open seat for an elected parent of a currently enrolled student. 


School Board Nominations:

All open seats for the School Board are for three years (June 2021-June 2024). Open seats include one (1) elected K-12 at-large teacher and one (1) elected community member.

All candidates and write-ins must meet eligibility requirements at the time the election ends for votes for that candidate to be counted. In addition to the above qualifications, the following criteria are set forth for each of the outlined categories:

  1. Community Member: an individual who does not have any current connection to PACT or any previous connection in the last one (1) year. Connections to PACT are defined as anyone previously employed by or having an immediate family member employed by PACT, previously attended, or having an immediate family member who previously attended PACT. The community member involvement intends to provide an outside perspective for the benefit of PACT. The one-year time frame is intended to allow the development of an outside perspective if the person had previous PACT ties.
  2. Teacher: an individual serving in a current teaching capacity at PACT for at least 12 months and anticipates the continuance of that status during their term. Either an Elementary or Secondary teacher may fill the At-Large Teacher Representative position.


Committee descriptions and PACT Bylaws are available on the school website. Visit Policy 201 - Election Policy and Procedures for Elected Committees for more information. 

The annual elections will be held online from April 23-27, 2021.
