(2) By unanimous vote and not later than March 1 of each year, the local school committee may recommend rejection for the ensuing year of any teacher assigned to the school by the district school board. The recommendation shall be delivered to the clerk of the district in writing and shall specify the reason for the recommendation. The board shall review the recommendation submitted by the local school committee and make final determination.

(3) The district school board may submit the question of establishing additional local school committees or abolishing existing local school committees to the electors at any regular district election.
