As used in this section, "technical college district" means a district created under division (A), (B), (C), or (D) of section 3357.02 of the Revised Code the voters of which have not authorized the levy of a tax outside the ten-mill limitation. The board of education of any city or exempted village school district that has territory in or that is contiguous to a technical college district may by resolution adopted by a majority of the members of the board request the inclusion of all of the school district's territory in the technical college district. The governing board of an educational service center whose service area contains the whole territory of a county or that is contiguous to a county that is contiguous to or that has territory in a technical college district may, by resolution adopted by a majority of the members of the board, request the inclusion of all of the county's territory in the technical college district. A copy of the resolution shall be certified to the board of trustees of the technical college district. The board of trustees of a technical college district to which a resolution has been certified may by resolution adopted by a majority of the members of the board propose the expansion of the technical college district to include all of the territory described in the resolution, and certify a copy of the resolution to the Ohio board of regents, which may approve or disapprove the expansion and designate the date on which the expansion shall take effect. If a college district board of trustees has received more than one resolution requesting inclusion in the district, the board's resolution may propose the expansion to include the territory of more than one school district or one county, provided that all such territory is contiguous either to the college district or to territory described in the board's resolution. The expansion of a technical college district under this section does not affect the terms of district trustees serving on the date of such expansion. If expansion of the technical college district requires the appointment of two additional trustees pursuant to section 3357.05 of the Revised Code, the additional trustees shall meet the requirements set forth in such section and shall be appointed within ninety days of the effective date of the expansion. One such trustee shall be appointed by the governor with the advice and consent of the senate for a term ending the same day of the same month of the year as the terms of other trustees appointed by the governor end, in the first year during which the term of no other trustee appointed by the governor ends. One trustee shall be initially appointed by the presidents or their representatives of the city and exempted village school district boards of education and the educational service center governing boards whose territories are embraced by the expanded technical college district. Prior to the appointment of the trustee the president of the board of education of the city school district having the largest pupil enrollment shall call a caucus of the presidents of the foregoing boards at a time and place designated by such president. At such caucus the board presidents or their representatives shall select the trustee by majority vote of those attending. This appointment shall be for a term ending the same day of the same month of the year as the terms of trustees not appointed by the governor in the first year during which the term of only one such trustee ends. Thereafter, all appointments of trustees shall be made in the manner set forth in section 3357.05 of the Revised Code.
