INTRODUCED

HB 1255 -- St. Louis City School District Board

Sponsor:  Troupe

This bill revises certain qualifications and procedures for
election to the school board in the St. Louis city school
district.  A residency of one year in the subdistrict from which
a member is elected is established.  The bill clarifies that a
qualified resident of the subdistrict will be appointed by the
mayor to fill any vacancy.  Currently, the law specifies that
should a board member holding office on August 28, 1998, leave
office, the appointed successor would serve for the remainder of
the term; this date is changed to August 28, 2000.  The bill
establishes that the election scheduled for 2001 will fill
positions for the even-numbered subdistricts and the 2003
election will fill positions for odd-numbered subdistricts.  A
transition provision that would have required 2 of the board
members elected in 2003 to serve 3-year, rather than 4-year
terms, is eliminated.  The bill also clarifies the procedure by
which the State Board of Education will redistrict the
subdistricts, which are based on the city's wards, if necessary
after the decennial census.
