This bill broadens the voting rights of representatives of sending districts who are eligible for membership on the receiving district board of education. The current statute permits the representatives to vote on the tuition which the receiving district will charge the sending district and certain bill lists or contracts; new capital construction to be utilized by sending district pupils; the appointment, transfer or removal of certain teaching staff members and professional administrative staff; and the addition or deletion of curricular and extracurricular programs involving pupils of the sending district. This bill provides that the representative would also vote on any matter directly involving the sending district pupils or programs and services utilized by them; approval of the annual receiving district budget; any collectively negotiated agreement involving employees who provide services utilized by sending district pupils; any individual employee contracts not covered by a collectively negotiated agreement, if those employees provide or oversee programs or services utilized by sending district pupils; and any matter concerning governance of the receiving board, including, but not limited to, the selection of the board president and vice-president, approval of board bylaws, and the employment of professionals or consultants such as attorneys, architects, engineers, or others who provide services to the receiving district board of education.
