IOWA CITY, Iowa — The Iowa City school board needs to fill a vacancy, and there are some questions about how to do that.

Board President Sally Hoelscher resigned through an email Tuesday night, citing personal reasons for her decision.

Friday, an employee at the Johnson County Auditor’s Office said state law requires the board to appoint a new member.

John Deeth says the only way a special election would occur is if the board fails to act within 30 days, which would be July 24th.

In that case, the school district would have to pay the cost of the election.

The Iowa City school board will hold a special meeting at 8:30 Tuesday morning to discuss how to fill the vacancy.
