Question: Election help schools changing grades

Our schools are switching again when we hold our elections we will be voting for the board of the other school name. Can this be done without amending the bylaws?

This would depend really on what the make-up of the "new" group will be. Is it a blending of different parent groups? Or is it essentially the current group at a new location? If it's a new group, you would need to change the name and mission statement. Those changes would need to be forwarded to the IRS if the group had been incorporated or had 501(c)3 status. If your group is essentially the old group with a new name and location, you can pretty much maintain your existing bylaws. If it is a whole new group (some kind of blending from different schools), then you could consider writing new/updating bylaws and have them voted on as one of the first steps the new group takes.
