The Santa Fe Independent School District Board of Trustees on Monday voted unanimously to adopt a policy change reflecting the shift in the elections for trustees from May to November.
Trustees will be elected to four-year terms in November, with elections taking place during even-numbered years. This year, Place 1 and Place 2 on the board were set to be on the ballot. However, incumbents Billy Burns and Darnell Gwin have filed unopposed in the November 6 election, leading to the election to be cancelled. Burns and Gwin will serve until 2016.
In 2014, Places 3 through 7 will be elected, with members drawing lots following the election for one member of the board to serve an initial two-year term. That board member may then run for a full four-year term in 2016.
The board had approve the change by resolution, but an amendment to the policy was required to match the policy to the resolution.
