(B)(1) The Board of Trustees of Rock Hill School District No. 3 of York County is composed of seven members elected in a nonpartisan election by the qualified electors of the district with five members required to reside in the five districts delineated in subsection (A) of this section and two elected at large from the district without regard to residency.
(2) The trustees representing districts 1, 3, and 5 and one at-large seat must be elected at the time of the general election of 2000, and the trustees representing districts 2 and 4 and one at-large seat must be elected at the time of the general election of 2002. Trustees serving on the effective date of this act elected from residency districts 2 and 4 and the at-large seat shall continue to serve until the expiration of their terms in 2002. Thereafter, all terms of office are for four years, until their successors are elected and qualify.
