RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- In the wake of the Washoe County School district controversy, Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey is calling for the 2015 Nevada Legislature to consider certain changes regarding County School Boards.
Hickey is requesting the Legislative Counsel Bureau to draft a bill that will look at a possible blended or hybrid system of elected and appointed School Board Members. Hickey also said he's been asked by several Northern Nevadan leaders to consider this bill draft request.
The draft request calls to "make various changes concerning the board of trustees of school districts, including providing for election and appointment of members and revising their powers."
