School Board Term Limits May Soon Become Law
The November 6th elections will bring about the vote for term limits for school board members.
This vote has been debated for years and it finally is happening.
The passage would change the law to a total of 12 consecutive years of membership. Lafayette and Jefferson parishes already have limits, therefore these parishes will not be asked to vote on the issue.
The limit, if passed, would go into effect after January 1st, 2014. The vote is expected to pass in many of Louisiana's 70 school districts. The vote also will not apply to the state-run Recovery School District, which is overseen by BESE.
