Seven newly elected state Board of Education members are set to be inducted, but the ultimate fate of their posts is unclear.
A ceremony is planned for Monday at 10 a.m. at the Hawaii State Judiciary Building on south King Street.
The four new members are Maralyn Kurshals of the Leeward district; Leona Rocha-Wilson of Maui, and Randall Yee and Pamela Young, who represent all of Oahu.
Reelected to the board are central district member Eileen Clarke; Oahu at-large member Kim Coco Iwamoto, and Windward district member John Penebacker.
Voters this month approved a constitutional amendment allowing the governor to appoint the school board. However, the Legislature must first enact laws governing the appointment process.
