202.3 Term of Office

Code No. 202.3


Board members elected for a full term at a regularly scheduled school election in September serve for four years. Board members appointed to fill a vacant position will serve until the next scheduled school 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.

NOTE: This policy states the terms of office established by law for board members elected at a regular or special election or appointed to fill a vacancy.
