Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of Delaware:

Section 1. Chapter 79, Volume 52, Laws of Delaware, is hereby amended by repealing and striking out paragraph (g), Section 2507, as it appears in Section 1 thereof, and by enacting and inserting in lieu thereof a new paragraph (g), Section 2507, to read as follows:

Section 2507. (g) Provided, however, in the Henry C. Conrad High School District the board shall be composed of five members, one member to be elected each year for a term of five years. One member shall be a resident of and elected by the voters in each of the following districts: Krebs, Stanton, Richardson Park, Marshallton and Oak Grove. The election shall be conducted in the same manner as prescribed in Chapter 3 of this title, except, however, that the polling place shall be the school building or buildings in the district which is electing such member, and the conduct of the election shall be the responsibility of the school board of the district which is electing such member. In the event that the Krebs, Stanton, Richardson Park, Marshallton or Oak Grove districts have their method of selecting school board members changed from election to appointed by the resident judge of New Castle County in accordance with Section 511 of this title, the member from such district on the school board of the Henry C. Conrad High School District shall also be appointed by the resident judge of New Castle County in accordance with the provisions of sub-section (d) of this section, except that such appointments shall be for a term of 5 years when filling a vacancy caused by expiration of term. Any vacancy caused by reason other than expiration of term shall be filled for the unexpired term by a vote of the members of the school board of the district of the member whose office is vacant, except, in the event the members of such school board are appointed by the resident judge of New Castle County, the vacancy shall be filled for the unexpired term by appointment by said resident judge.
