or member-elect must send written notification to the school district clerk and
treasurer. To be valid, the school board member or member-elect must send the
notification within 30 days after the certification of the individual's election or at
least 30 days before the start of the individual's next taxable year. In general, a
notification applies only to the taxable year in which the individual's election is
