(a) A third class borough may reclassify as a first or second class borough in the manner provided by AS 29.35.320 - 29.35.330 for the addition of an areawide power by a first or second class borough, except the petition or proposal requests reclassification instead of requesting addition of a power.  At the time of voting on reclassification of a third class borough to first or second class status, voters shall vote also on whether the borough shall, on reclassification, retain a combined assembly and school board or elect a separate assembly and board as otherwise provided for first and second class boroughs.

(b) If a combined assembly and school board are approved at the reclassification election, the assembly serving at the time of the election continues to serve as the assembly and board on voter approval of reclassification and until terms of assembly members expire as provided before reclassification.

(c) If a separate assembly and school board are approved at the reclassification election, a school board shall be elected in conformity with AS 14.12.030 - 14.12.100 at the next regular election, if it occurs within 90 days of the date of the reclassification election, or otherwise at a special election within 90 days of the date of the reclassification election.  Expiration dates of terms of school board members elected at a special election must coincide with the date of the regular election.  Until a board is elected and qualified, the assembly continues to serve as the board.
