    Deletes the content of the previous edition and replaces it with the following.

    Repeals Sections C and D of Article V of “A Plan for Merger of the Rowan County School and the Salisbury City Schools," as amended by Section 2 of SL 1987-890. 

    Requires that the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education consist of seven members elected on a partisan basis at the time of the general election in each even-numbered year with members serving staggered four-year terms. Requires one member to be elected from each of seven single-member residency districts, as described, by the qualified voters of the entire county. Specifies that only a person residing in a residency district is eligible as a candidate in the election to that district's seat. Requires candidates to be nominated at the same time and manner as county officers. Requires the election to be conducted in accordance with the applicable provisions of GS Chapters 115C and 163. Requires vacancies to be filled according to GS 115C-37.1 (makes conforming changes to that statute, effective December 1, 2024). Requires that a person reside in the resident district where a vacancy exists to be eligible for appointment to fill the vacancy.

    Allows the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education to revise the residency districts if an adjustment is required for a change in the attendance zones to accommodate a new school, school closure, or consolidation of schools; specifies that a change in the boundaries of attendance zones does not affect the ability of a person to complete a term of office. Establishes staggered terms, setting out which members are to be elected in 2024 and in 2026. 

    Specifies that the act does not affect the term of members elected in 2020 or 2022 and sets out requirements for filling vacancies in offices of those elected to the Rowan-Salisbury Board of Education in 2020 and 2022. 

    Amends the act's long title.
