Current Bill Summary


SB 228 – This act modifies the composition of the board of directors of the Kansas City School District. This act reduces the number of directors from nine to seven. Instead of three at-large directors, the board will have one at-large director. One at-large director will be elected at the election in 2012. The remaining six directors will continue to represent the six subdistricts. However, candidates for a director for a subdistrict will be voted on by the voters of the entire school district, not just the voters of that particular subdistrict. This change will begin for subdistricts 1, 3, and 5 at the 2012 election and for subdistricts 2, 4, and 6 at the 2014 election.
