Board of Education Director Districts

Director Districts Board of Education Director Districts

 In November, Mapleton voters approved a measure introducing a School Board Director District Plan of Representation.

Currently, Mapleton’s five Board of Education members serve at large, with no designated director districts. This provides no assurance that all Mapleton neighborhoods are represented on the Board of Education.

With the new plan of representation, Mapleton’s five Board of Education members will now each represent one of five director districts. This means that all neighborhoods will have representation on the Board.

Director districts will help Mapleton continue to respond to the needs of the community by ensuring that Board of Education members stay connected, visible and in touch with the needs of their neighbors and neighborhood.

The plan will begin with the 2019 election, with one member elected from director district B and one member elected from director district D. In 2021, one member will be elected from director district A, another member from director district C, and another member from director district E.

FAQ

How were the director districts determined? 

The director districts were designed to be as equal in population as possible using census and county information. If the proposed plan of representation is approved, the new policy BBB would require periodic reviews of the director district boundaries. 

 

What is the purpose of director districts?

School board members are elected representatives of the residents in the school district in which they reside. Through director districts, all neighborhoods in Mapleton Public Schools will have representation on the Board of Education. Current Board of Education members believe this plan will help them continue to respond to the needs of the community by ensuring board directors are connected, visible and in touch with needs of their neighbors and neighborhood.
