Elections

Election Policy and Procedures - Stargate has defined a set of Election Policies and Procedures. You can find a copy in the Forms and Files page.

General Election Information

The School Board of Directors and Accountability Committee are filled by elected positions. Elections are held twice per year to fill any open positions for these groups. Generally, the positions for the Board of Directors are filled in the spring, and the openings for Accountability are filled in the fall.

Each parent and staff member can vote in the elections but they are only allowed one vote per election (i.e. you cannot vote for each child that you have in Stargate).

The Recruiting Committee is responsible for announcing the election and assembling a list of candidates for the open position. 

The Election Committee coordinates the logistics of the election process such as creating the ballot, providing voters with instructions on how to vote, tracking results, and announcing the results.

Helping with Elections

If you would like to participate in the election process, but not necessarily run for a position, please visit the Election Committee webpage to learn how you can participate. It is a small commitment of time 1-2 times per year. We are well organized and laugh (a lot). Join us!  Check out our page for contact information.
