The four recalled school board members were:
- Mary Burson. Burson's term would have expired in 2013.
- Board vice-president Wayne Shoemaker. His term would have expired in 2011.
- Board president Donald Johnston. His term would have expired in 2011.
- Board secretary Jake Henderson. His term would have expired in 2013.

Scott Tietmeyer, Kenneth Everitt, Charles Nussbaum, Philip McKinley and Patrick Lloyd were elected to replace the previous board.
