In opening Tuesday night's meeting, the Spencer school board conducted elections for the upcoming year.
The board voted 4-0 to re-elect Bob Whittenberg as their board president. Whittenberg abstained from the vote.
Board member Marty Bomgaars nominated Bill Zinn, the board's vice president, to serve another term.
Zinn, who has been joining the meetings, via Skype, from Waterloo, nominated Dean Mechler as the vice president for the next year.
"The concept of having someone in the area makes sense," Zinn said. "If, for some reason, Bob was unable to attend, Dean would be right there to conduct the meeting."
Mechler was voted into the position as vice president 4-1. He voted for Zinn to keep from casting his vote for himself.
The board also voted to continue to hold the meetings on the fourth Tuesday of the month, at 5:30 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled for Oct. 23.
