Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 29, 2013 02:48 PM
From: Senator Andrew E. Dinniman
To: All Senate members
Subject: Partisan School Board Elections
I plan to re-introduce SB 327 of 2011-2012, my legislation to eliminate partisan school board elections. Under my proposed legislation, school directors will be elected at the November municipal election beginning in 2015. Election winners would be seated in December.

Additionally, the number of signatures that candidates will need on their nominating papers will be determined by the size of the school district. Party affiliation will not be listed nor need to be disclosed.

If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Lisa Felix of my staff at 705-5849 or by e-mail to lfelix@pasenate.com. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SB443
