As we get closer to the end of the voting period for HSA officers, the nominating committee is reminding candidates and HSA members of the procedures.
All teachers have received ballots for each of their students to take home. If someone did not receive a ballot they can pick one up in the office. Announcements have been made to faculty, staff and support staff about the election and where to obtain ballots.
Below are the rules and procedures guiding this process.
Voting for Candidates will end May 30, 2018 at 3:00 PM.
Please return your completed ballot form in the envelope provided to the marked box in the McCall Elementary Office by May 30, 2018 at 3:00 PM or you may bring your completed ballot form to the HSA meeting planned for May 30, 2018 at 8:30 AM in the McCall Library.
Please vote for one candidate per office by circling your chosen candidate’s name. If you wish to vote for a candidate not on the Ballot Form, write in the name of a candidate on the Write In line and circle them. If there is only one candidate running for each office, we ask that you still vote by circling them as we need to have a record that this person is supported by the parent body.
To be a valid completed Ballot Form, complete the following:
1. place your completed Ballot Form in the envelope provided
2. close and seal the envelope
3. sign your name on the back of the envelope
4. write your child’s (or children’s) name on the back of the envelope
5. Write your child’s homeroom on the back of envelope
Ballots will be removed from signed envelopes and counted by an independent representative from the Philadelphia Home & School Council.
No school staff or HSA board members will be involved in vote counting or be aware of how association members vote.
One vote per household. Faculty, staff, support staff and student government leaders are eligible to vote according to McCall HSA Bylaws.
No campaigning by candidates, teachers, staff or students may take place during regular school hours.
