Board members elected for a full term at a regularly scheduled school election will serve for four years.  Board members appointed to fill a vacant seat on the Board will serve until a successor is elected and qualified in accordance with law.  A Board member elected to fill a vacancy will serve out the remainder of 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.
