The Vote Tracker data can be filtered by Subject, Date, Director, or Type. Subject: the broad issue category being addressed by the legislation. For example, the “Schools” category includes things like discipline policies, school portfolio management, and Quality Schools Development. Date: By adjusting the starting and end date on the Date slider, you can filter the date range of items displayed in the table. Director: By using this filter, you can limit the table to only display votes from particular School Board Directors. Type: the form of the legislation being voted on. For example, motions, resolutions, and Board policies.
The Vote Tracker contains voting data on all legislative items that received a vote at both regular and special Board meetings from 2014 to present, excluding items on the general consent report*. Only the votes of currently sitting Board members are displayed in the Vote Tracker.
*The general consent report is a list of items that the Board votes to approve en masse at every meeting without discussion. It typically includes items like professional services contracts and personnel contracts.
At the top of Vote Tracker is a search bar. This can be used to search any text contained within the tables, including item name, Director, subject, and type. Beneath the search bar are four filters: Subject, Date, Director, Type. Below the filters is the table of individual legislative items. In this table, you will be able to see individual votes on the legislative item. Each row is linked to the legislative item on OUSD Legistar. Click anywhere on the row to go to the corresponding Legistar page.
The Vote Tracker has aggregated the legislative items and vote records from OUSD Legistar into an easily sortable and searchable interactive dashboard.
