File Attachment:
Background: In October 2008, the Board revised Board Rule 1.28, Board Memberships, which now states, in part:

"(3) In regard to the Wisconsin Association of School Boards (WASB), The Milwaukee Board of School Directors, following receipt of notice of an upcoming election from the WASB, shall elect the WASB delegate for Region 14 in September, October, November, or December of the year preceding any new three-year WASB term."

At its 2023 Annual Organizational Meeting, the Board elected Director Marcela "Xela" Garcia to serve the remainder of the term vacated by outgoing Board member Sequana Taylor.

The WASB has advised the Office of Board Governance that it is necessary to hold an election to select a delegate for the next three-year term.
Fiscal Impact Statement: No fiscal impact.
