School Board Trustee Vacancy
Emmett Independent School District is seeking an individual to fill a trustee vacancy on the school board. This position is open due to the resignation of Ralph Erb. The new board member’s term will last until January 1, 2020. If the individual wishes to continue on the school board, they would need to run for election in November 2019.
