Act 46, Section 9 Proposals

The Legislature required the board of each school district in the State that will not be in a newly unified structure by July 1, 2019 to submit a “Sec. 9 Proposal” by December 26, 2017 in which the school board:

  • analyzes the district’s current ability to meet the Act 46 Goals;
  • recounts its conversations with other districts on ways to improve opportunity, equity, and efficiency regionally; and
  • presents a proposal to improve by either merging with other districts; working with other districts in some other way; or retaining the same governance structure.
