2022 GIS Board Election/ 2022 General Body Meeting Announcement

Assalamu-Alaikum Dear GIS Parents,

We pray to Allah (SWT) this letter finds you in good health and high Islamic spirits.

The MCA Election Committee, by majority decision, has decided to continue to conduct and hold exclusively online voting for GIS Election (2022). A valid email address is required to guarantee successful online voting.

GIS Election Timing for online balloting:

Online voting will start on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 6:00 AM and will end Friday, March 11, 2022, at 5 PM. Ballots will be sent via email.

The elections will coincide with the scheduled Granada Islamic School General Body Meeting, which is to take place on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at 7:00 PM.

Only parents of a GIS student this school year 2021-2022 and a member of the MCA on or before March 1, 2022, will be eligible to vote. GIS Bylaws allow only one vote per family. A voting ballot will be sent to the eligible parent who is a current MCA member. If both parents are eligible to vote, a voting ballot will be sent by default to the mother’s email address unless the family designates a voting parent. Please email GIS board board@granadaschool.org and Election committee election@mcabayarea.org  the designated voting parent with their valid email address.
