How is an ACE representative elected?
Each principal shall be responsible for conducting an election in his or her school to elect the appropriate number of classroom teachers for that school. All professional employees assigned to a school, whether full- or part-time, shall be afforded the opportunity to vote for that school’s classroom teacher representative(s), but shall not be required to vote.
The Superintendent or designee shall be responsible for conducting an election to elect the other campus-based or District-level professionals who are not classroom teachers. All professional employees not assigned to a campus and those campus-based professionals who are not classroom teachers, whether full- or part-time, shall be afforded the opportunity to vote for the other campus-based or District-level professional representatives, but shall not be required to vote.
By the first Friday of May, each principal and the Superintendent or designee will provide the appropriate staff members separate opportunities to nominate and to elect the appropriate number of representatives to the Advisory Committee on Education (ACE) for their campus or group. For each representative, an alternate will also be elected to attend ACE meetings only when the respective elected representative cannot attend.
The election of the appropriate number of representatives and alternates will be by secret ballot. Each eligible person may vote for the appropriate number of persons to be elected for that school or group but will not be entitled to cast multiple votes for a single candidate.
