voting members
Voting Members

Confirm the number of VOTING members (Not including alternates) on your roster. This is the number used to establish a quorum.

If a voting member is not present, the alternate for that position is the voting member for that meeting.

Assistant principals may only serve as the alternate if a waiver has been filed and approved.

The designated UTD steward may appoint someone to attend and vote at an EESAC meeting in their absence.

establishing quorum
Establishing Quorum
    • A quorum is at least 50% + 1 of the voting members or their alternates in case of the member’s absence.
  • Check quorum requirements stipulated in your bylaws.
  • Some schools stipulate that teachers/parents/principal must be present.
    • A meeting may take place with or without a quorum. (Also stipulated in bylaws)
  • No decisions may be made without a quorum
  • A vote or consensus may only take place if a quorum is established.

Let’s take a look:

  • How many voting members are there?
  • How many people does it take to make a quorum?
  • How many voting members are employed by the district?

    • Example:

“A decision was made through consensus that $500 will be used from the EESAC funds to provide training to the staff on Differentiated Instruction.”

EESAC decision making process

  • If a vote is taken, each person’s name and vote must be documented in the minutes of the meeting.
