Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 152 -- School Board Recall Elections

Sponsor:  Boykins

This bill establishes a method for recalling school board members
in metropolitan school districts in addition to the procedures
outlined in the academically deficient school statute.  Upon a
petition signed by at least 25% of the number of persons voting
in the last school board election, a recall election will be
held.  The bill specifies the requirements for filing the
petition, its physical form and content, the procedure for
verifying signatures, and the procedure for placing the matter on
the ballot.  If a majority votes to retain the recalled member,
the member remains in office and cannot be subject to another
recall, except as provided in the academically deficient school
statute.  If the member is recalled, a successor will be chosen
by the method used to fill vacancies on seven-director boards,
specified in Section 162.261, RSMo.
