5. a. If the district with which the non-operating district is merged is a Type II district without a board of school estimate, except as otherwise provided in this subsection, the new district established pursuant to section 2 of this act shall have a board of education with the same number of members as the board of education of the district with which the non-operating district has been merged. The members of the board of education of the district with which the non-operating district has been merged shall continue in office as members of the first board of education of the new district until the expiration of the respective terms for which they were elected.

In any year in which the term of a member of the board of education of the new district expires, his successor shall be elected at-large by the voters of the new district.

The executive county superintendent shall, not later than 30 days after the merger of the districts, appoint one member of the board of education of the former non-operating district to the board of the new district, who shall serve until the first Monday succeeding the first annual school election in which a member of the board of education of the new district is elected at-large; except that if the former non-operating district had representation on the board of education of the district with which it has been merged pursuant to section 2 of P.L.1995, c.8 (C.18A:38-8.2), then that representative shall be the person appointed by the executive county superintendent. The member appointed by the executive county superintendent shall be a voting member of the board.

b. If the district with which the non-operating district is merged is a Type I district, the new district shall have a board of education with the same number of members as the board of education of the district with which the non-operating district has been merged plus one additional member. The mayor or other chief executive officer of the municipality in which the former non-operating district is located shall appoint the one additional member.

c. If the district with which the non-operating district is merged is a regional district, the former non-operating district shall be treated as a constituent district of the regional district and the membership of the board of education of the new district shall be in accordance with the provisions of chapter 13 of Title 18A of the New Jersey Statutes.
