What is the source for all the data?
All voting data and legislative items within the table were pulled from OUSD Legistar by a GO staff member. The “Types” filter aligns with the list of legislation types used on ousd.legistar.com. The only difference is that we broke the type “Charter School Petition” into sub-types of charter school petitions in order to increase usability. We anticipate that these votes will be some of the most examined and we want to ensure that people can understand what the Directors were voting on without clicking on the individual item (e.g. a charter petition denial and charter petition approval look the same if you’re only reading the item name.) The list of issue categories contained in the “Subject” filter was designed and applied by GO staff. Some legislative items could be categorized under multiple subjects. In these cases, the more narrow or salient subject category was used.
