Secretary Matt Schultz reminds schools of redistricting deadline

Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced today that the statutory deadline of May 15th, 2012 for certain school districts to file director district plans is rapidly approaching.

After each federal decennial census, school boards of districts divided into director districts must review the district boundaries to determine whether the current boundaries comply with existing Iowa laws pertaining to population and representation. Each applicable school district must file a director district map, a worksheet certifying the population of each district, and a board resolution adopting the director district boundaries with the Secretary of State's office.

The boundaries become effective July 1st, 2012.

School districts that elect all their directors at-large by the entire school district do not need to file any materials.
