Statement from Mayor Stan Joyner Regarding July 16 Municipal School Board Referendum:


I am pleased with the outcome of the July 16 election. Collierville citizens again have given their overwhelming support to a referendum establishing a Collierville Municipal School District. This referendum passed with a convincing margin which was to be expected and it serves as a “mandate from the citizens”. From the beginning of our efforts to form a school district we have known that it would be a lengthy process. Although this major milestone is behind us there is still much work to be done. The next important step is the election of a Municipal School Board.

The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen is in the process of scheduling a special called meeting on August 5 for the first reading of an Ordinance to establish a Municipal School Board. The second reading of the School Board Ordinance will be August 12 and the third reading and public hearing will be at a special called meeting on August 22.

Citizens who are interested in running for the new Municipal School Board will be able to pull a petition on Monday, August 26. The qualifying deadline for School Board Candidates to submit their petition is NOON, September 26. The actual Election Day for the new Municipal School Board is Thursday, November 7.

I want to assure every Collierville resident that the Board of Mayor and Aldermen understand that the schools are the heart of our community. We have been and will continue to be fully committed to establishing a school district that not only provides the best quality educational environment but also reflect the values of our community.
