HB 1490 School board members who are called to active duty; appointment of acting school board members.
SUMMARY AS PASSED: (all summaries)
School board members who engage in war service or are called to active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States; appointment of acting school board members. Requires each school board member who is relieved from the duties of his office by reason of engaging in the war service of the United States when called forth by the Governor or being called to active duty in the Armed Forces of the United States to submit to the school board a list of names of suitable persons to perform the duties of such office as acting school board member during the period in which the regular school board member is engaged in such war service or active duty, in which case the school board is required to consider appointing and may appoint an acting school board member from such list of names. If the school board does not make an appointment from such list, the school board shall notify the submitting member in writing of the rationale for its decision. The bill provides that during such period, the acting school board member shall be vested with all the powers, authority, rights, and duties of the regular school board member for whom he is acting.
