279.6  Vacancies--qualification--tenure.

Vacancies occurring among the officers or members of a school board shall be filled by the board by appointment. A person so appointed to fill a vacancy in an elective office shall hold office until a successor is elected and qualified pursuant to section 69.12. A person appointed to fill a vacancy in an appointive office shall hold such office for the residue of the unexpired term and until a successor is appointed and qualified. Any person so appointed shall qualify within ten days thereafter in the manner required by section 277.28.

However, if a member of a school board resigns from the board prior to the time for filing nomination papers for office as a school board member, as provided in section 277.4, and specifies in the resignation that the resignation will be effective on the date the next term of office for elective school officials begins, the president of the board shall declare the office vacant as of that date and nomination papers shall be received for the unexpired term of the resigning member. The person elected at the next regular school election to fill the vacancy shall take office at the same time and place as the other elected school board members.
