Election Eligibility

An individual will be considered qualified to run for the Board of Directors as a parent or teacher representative if they have at least 12 months of experience at PACT at the time they will be seated. All candidates and write-ins must meet eligibility requirements when 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 with no current connection to PACT or any previous connection in the last one (1) year. Connections to PACT include having previously been employed by or having an immediate family member employed by PACT, having previously attended PACT, or having an immediate family member who attends or 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 ties to PACT.
  2. Parent: an individual who is the parent or guardian of a current PACT student. The parent member cannot be employed by PACT at the time of their nomination or in any capacity during their Board term. The individual shall not have been an employee for at least 12 months before nomination.
  3. Teacher: an individual who serves in a current teaching capacity at PACT and anticipates the continuance of that status during their term. An Elementary teacher must fill the Elementary Teacher Representative, and a Secondary Teacher must fill the Secondary Teacher Representative position unless a qualified candidate cannot be found. Either may fill the At-Large Teacher Representative positions.
