At a special board hearing held on Friday, June 28, 2013, the Governing Board of the Oracle Elementary School District #2 adopted a resolution calling for a Special Budget Override Election. The election, if approved by the Pinal County Superintendent of Schools Jill Broussard, will be scheduled for Nov. 5, 2013.
The resolution also sets the deadline for submitting arguments “For” and “Against” the election to the Pinal County Superintendent. The deadline for public arguments is Aug. 16, 2013.
Superintendent Jill Broussard attended the special Board meeting and was there to interview applicants for the vacant school board member position. The Oracle Governing Board elected to not make a recommendation to the County Superintendent concerning the four applicants. Broussard will make the decision which she said should be completed by Monday, July 1.
There are four applicants for the position. They are Alicia Bristow, Hugh Smith, Jeri Taylor and Kurt Steffens.
