A new Kilcoskan NS Board of Management term will commence from December 2015 and run to November 2019. Elections must now be held to fill the male and female “parent nominee to the Board” roles (ie. mothers representative and fathers representative roles.) There will be 2 stages to this election process as outlined below.
Stage 1: Firstly, we now invite all parents to nominate potential candidates to go forward for election as the male / female “parent nominee to the Board”. To do this please complete the nomination form/s enclosed, noting that 4 forms are being posted home so that both mams and dads can nominate a male and female parent nominee each, if they wish. Please of course check with any nominee that you are proposing for these positions that they are happy to be put forward. Once you have confirmed that the nominee is happy with this, please complete and return the form to the school by 2.40pm on Monday 30th November 2015 at the latest.
Following this first nomination stage, candidate nominees will be asked to provide a short written biography to the school, which will then be circulated to all parents. Only upon receipt of this will stage 2 of the process commence, involving:
Stage 2: Biographies of all candidates and ballot papers will be circulated to all parents and each parent of a child in the school will be eligible to vote for a male and female “parent nominee to the Board” of their choice. Following return of completed ballot papers, the ballots will be counted publicly and one male and one female parent of a child/children in Kilcoskan NS will become a member of the Board of Management for the 2015-2019 school term.
I ask you now at stage 1 to complete the enclosed nomination forms if you know of a suitable parent who is willing to go forward for election. The enclosed nomination forms must be returned to the school by Monday 30th November at 2.40pm. Only after this date will stage 2 commence.
