What is the term of office for a governing board member?

The regular term of office for each member shall be four years from January 1 following the General Election. Governing Board members’ terms are rotated so that in any given general election year not all Governing Board members’ terms expire at the same time. For this November General Election the majority of the school districts have three members whose terms will expire on December 31, 2020. There are districts that will have a special term position on the ballot. These positions have either been vacant or an appointment has been made by the Graham County School Superintendent to fill the position until the next General Election.
