    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 
     
    How often does the School Board meet?

    What is the time commitment to be a board member?
     
    In addition to the regular Board meetings, members can expect to participate in other functions, such as school visits, community meetings and graduation exercises.  Prospective candidates are encouraged to contact a member of the current board of directors to ask what the experience is like and what is involved to receive direct information.

    School Board members are elected to a term of four years.
     
    What is the primary election process?
     
    Primary elections are used to narrow the field of candidates before the general election.  The primary election is held on the first Tuesday of August.  However, if no more than two people file for a board position, there is no primary election for that position.
     
    What are the general election procedures?
     
    The general election is held on the first Tuesday in November.  After the county elections officer certifies the elections results, the newly elected Board member(s) take office at the next official board meeting.
     
    How are vacancies filled when a Board member leaves prior to the end of his or her term?
     
    In case of a Board vacancy, the remaining Board members will appoint someone to fill the vacancy until the next regularly scheduled Board election, at which time a director will be elected for the unexpired term, if any.
