From Lincoln County Schools
Ballots are now being distributed to fill vacancies on the Lincoln County School District’s Indian Education Program Parent Committee. The votes are scheduled to be counted at the Parent Committee meeting to be held at Siletz Valley Charter School on Dec. 11.
Staff and current Parent Committee members have nominated LCSD parents, high school students, and teachers to be placed on the ballot. Of these nominees, those with the most votes will be elected to serve in the two-year positions.
All parents and guardians of Native American youth, teachers, classified staff (except Indian Education staff), and enrolled Indian Education high school students are eligible to vote in the election. Indian Education specialists began distributing ballots Nov. 16. Ballots may be requested through Dec. 4 by contacting Pat Whetstone at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The LCSD Indian Education Program serves all Native American students enrolled in school. The program is designed to meet the special educational and culturally related academic needs of Indian students. The objective of the parent committee is to assist the school district in bringing about the most effective Indian Education program possible and to achieve program objectives. Elections are held annually; the committee must have between 10 and 18 members.
