The Association’s Delegate Assembly (DA) will convene virtually on Saturday, June 27 at 9 a.m.
The DA meets twice a year to set policies that determine NJSBA’s position on educational issues and establish bylaws that govern its operations. Each board of education in the state is entitled to one voting delegate.
The Delegate Assembly originally scheduled for May was postponed to June 27, and will be conducted as a remote meeting, in accordance with Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order limiting the size of in-person gatherings.
Delegates will attend the meeting via the Webex Events video meeting service; delegates will need a computer or smart telephone to vote during the meeting.
Delegates, as well as non-voting board members and guests can register here. Registrants will be informed of the logon information for the meeting closer to the date of the meeting; all participants must be registered by 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 25 in order to receive the logon information.
There will also be a teleconference broadcast of the meeting available for members of the public to listen to: the meeting telephone number and access code will be posted to the NJSBA website here, closer to June 27.
Resolutions Delegates will vote on two resolutions at the June 27 meeting.
- Pohatcong, Alpha, Bloomsbury (Warren) The resolution seeks to reduce the threshold requirements for representation of a sending board on the receiving district board of education.
- Springfield Township (Burlington) The resolution seeks new policy language requiring the constituent district of a regional board of education to fill a board vacancy, rather than the regional board, which currently has the responsibility to fill the vacancy.
Delegates who wish to propose amendments to the resolutions should email the suggested changes to Cynthia Jahn, NJSBA general counsel, by 5 p.m. Friday, June 26.
Handbook to be Mailed The NJSBA Delegate Assembly Handbook, consisting of all materials relevant to the meeting, will be mailed June 10, 2020 to all preregistered delegates, alternates or other board members serving as delegates. It will also be posted on the NJSBA website at www.njsba.org/da. The rules of conduct for the NJSBA Delegate Assembly can be found here.
