The additional members will be elected at the 2020 annual School District Meeting. All members will be voted on by the entire electorate.

The terms of office for the additional member shall be as follows:
Berlin – term ending 2022
Calais – term ending 2021
East Montpelier – term ending 2023

Except as provided for the election of the initial members of the New Union Board in Article 10(B), each New Union District Board member shall serve for a period of three (3) years or until his or her successor is elected and qualified, as required by Vermont law.
Each member of the New Union Board who serves after the expiration of terms of the initial Board members, shall be elected at an annual or special meeting of the New Union District. Terms of office shall begin and expire on the date of the New Union District’s annual meeting. In the event the New Union District’s annual meeting precedes Town Meeting Day, the terms of each Board member shall begin and expire on Town Meeting Day.
If the voters amend this Article 11, the amendment shall ensure that the terms of office are staggered as required by law.
