GavelRichardson School Board Votes Unanimously to End Voting Rights Act Lawsuit
RISD to move toward 5-2 electoral plan with five single member districts and two at-large representatives; board president calls the move a win for educational equity

The Richardson ISD School Board voted unanimously this week to end a Voting Rights Act lawsuit regarding the way trustees will be elected in the future. The president of the board described the board as “united and committed,” and he called the action a win for equity in education. The decision to settle the suit means the parties will seek federal court approval to change this year’s school board election to November. Upon court approval, voting for three seats will occur in November, as opposed to May, after the board develops a transition plan that phases in the new single member districts. Proposed maps are in draft form and are expected to be released within the next week.

“This process was exhaustive, and our board put forth a collaborative and thoughtful effort to resolve the issues,” said Bono. “Since we worked with the plaintiff to achieve a resolution, we were able to craft a hybrid single member district plan that keeps two members elected at large with five members elected from within smaller geographic areas. Our board members want more diversity at the decision table. We are all optimistic that can be achieved with a new electoral plan. Hopefully, this system will result in successful elections for minority candidates.”
