SB 922 - This act formulates a new procedure of recalling school board members in addition to the methods for recall outlined in the academically deficient school statute. Upon a petition signed by at least 25% of the number voting in the last school board election, a recall election will be held. The act specifies the requirements for the filing, format, and verification of the petition.
If a majority votes to retain the recalled member, the member remains in office and cannot be subject to another recall, except as provided in the academically deficient school statute. If the member is recalled, a successor will be chosen in the same manner as vacancies are filled for any 7-member district.
This act is identical to HB 979 (2001).
