Board of Directors
ABSENCE OF A BOARD MEMBER
Whenever possible, each director shall give advance notice to the president or superintendent of his/her inability to attend a board meeting. A majority of the board may excuse a director's absence from a meeting if requested to do so by the absent member. The board shall declare a board member's position vacant after four consecutive unexcused absences from regular board meetings.
If a board member is on active duty or training status with the military, the board shall grant an extended leave of absence to cover the period of service or training. The extended leave of absence may not have the effect of extending the board member’s term. The board also has the authority to appoint a temporary successor to the absent board member’s position. The temporary successor shall serve until the board member returns or the end of the board member’s term.
