Current Bill Summary

SB 448 - This act creates a procedure for recalling school board members. A recall election will be held upon the submission of a petition signed by at least 25% of the number voting in the last school board election.

If a majority votes to retain the recalled member, the member remains in office and cannot be subject to another recall during his or her term. 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 similar to SB 922 (2004), and SB 112 (2005).
