2150 Filling Board Vacancies

The Board of Education has the power to fill any vacancy, by a majority vote, which may occur on the Board by reason of death, resignation, removal from office or from the School District, or refusal to serve, of any member or officer of the Board. The person so appointed in the place of any such member of the Board shall hold his/her office until the next annual election of Board members. The person elected or appointed to fill a vacancy takes office immediately upon filing the oath of office. The unexpired term of the office will then be filled by election.

The Board shall have the power to call a special School District election for the purpose of filling the unexpired term of office of a member of the Board.
