Purpose of the School Board Nominating Committee (SBNC)
The purpose of the School Board Nominating is to produce the best qualified people to serve the community on the Edgemont School Board. The process is designed to:
- Encourage qualified residents to make themselves available to serve
- Establish a fair and judicious means for evaluating and recommending candidates for the School Board
- Make campaigning less necessary or less likely by ensuring a fair and open process for their nomination.
Organized on a nonpartisan basis, under the sponsorship of the Edgemont Community Council, the Committee interviews each resident who has expressed an interest in being a candidate for the Board. After the interview process, the Committee recommends candidates to fill the number of positions available.
The Committee is composed of nineteen members (not including alternates): two from each of the eight civic associations; two elected by the Edgemont Community Council, and one designated student from the high school student government. Eligibility requirements and rules of procedure are set forth in the Committee’s By-Laws.
The chairman of the SNBC for the 2017-2018 school year is Lisa Decker
