The process for filling a vacancy differs from a typical school board election. Historically, the person appointed by the Board will take the oath of office and become a full member of the Board at that same meeting at which the interviews are held and will continue to serve in that position through the next reorganization meeting in January 2021. 

Chu, and anyone else in the community, will have the opportunity to file a petition to run for election to complete the remaining one year of this seat in the election to be held on November 3, 2020.
