School Board

In general terms, the “job” of a school board in Washington is to make “ample” provision for the education of all children.  More specifically, there are four major areas of responsibility which can be classified as providing for: 
1) A quality instructional program within the limits of the resources.
2) Management and direction of the school system.
3) Continued guidance through policy development and adoption.
4) Communication between the district and the community.

The School Board:
Creates policy for schools in the district, conducts strategic planning, oversees the school district, hires and oversees the superintendent, represents voters, adopts the school district budget, and are elected by voters.
