201.7 - Board Member Term of Office

Board members elected for a full term at a regularly scheduled school board election in November, of odd-numbered years, serve four-year terms.

Board members appointed to fill a vacant position serve until a successor is elected and qualified at the next regular school election unless there is an intervening special election for the school district; in which event a successor will be elected at the intervening special election. A board member elected to fill a vacancy will serve out the unexpired term.

Being a board member is a unique opportunity for a citizen to participate on a governing board of the school district. Eligible board members are encouraged to consider running for more than one term.
