Hi Deborah! Thanks for your inquiry. No - WSSDA as an Association has not taken a vote or position on I-1240. Yes - the WSSDA Board did take a position on I-1240 by unanimous vote at our August meeting. It was a vote to oppose the initiative, it was not a Resolution. We are allowed by the Attorney General's office to take a position, pro or con, on initiatives if we believe they are related to education, which this one obviously is. We can not take positions on individual candidates. Individual Boards have passed Resolutions in opposition to I-1240, which they are able to do locally at a regularly scheduled meeting of the Board. I hope this answers your questions. Take care, Mary Fertakis -----Original Message----From: Debra Kolrud [] Sent: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 12:46 AM To: Subject: WSSDA position on I-1240 Hello Mary, I hope all is going well for you. I wanted to ask if WSSDA has taken a vote on I-1240. I've been told that WSSDA did not take a position on 1240, but the WSSDA Board itself did. Can you confirm if Washington State School Directors not the board, endorse No-1240? If WSSDA did take a position could you please let me know when the association took the vote and provided a copy of the resolution. Take Care, Debra Kolrud=
