Whenever a vacancy occurs, the remaining board members must notify the regional superintendent within|
five calendar days after the vacancy occurs.
The board fills the vacancy until the next regular school election, at which time a successor is elected to serve the remainder
of the unexpired term, unless the vacancy occurs:
• with less than 868 days remaining in the term; OR
• less than 88 days before the next regularly scheduled election.
If one of these two exceptions applies, then no election to fill the vacancy is held, and the appointed member serves the
remainder of the unexpired term.
If the board fails to fill the vacancy within 45 days, then the regional superintendent fills the vacancy within the next 30 days.
If the regional superintendent fails to fill the vacancy, then it is filled at the next regular election.
