School Board Application Process

The Board's job is to determine a vision for the educational program; design a structure to achieve that vision; assure that the schools are accountable to the community; and advocate for continuous improvement in student learning.  While many have had a hand in shaping our school system, the Sequim Board of Directors must ultimately answer to the community and the State Superintendent of Public Instruction on issues related to local programs.  The Board selects a superintendent to administer adopted policies; however, the Board is the final authority on all matters concerning the district. (RCW 28A.320.010)

The five-member board sets the policies that guide Sequim's public education from Kindergarten through grade twelve.  All voters within the school district elect the Directors, who generally serve a four-year term unless appointed to fill a vacant position.  Two members serve in At Large positions, and the remaining three are elected from specific geographic areas.

Regular Board meetings are normally held at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Mondays of each month.

When a meeting date falls on a legal holiday, the meeting will be held on the next business day. The Board functions through regular meetings, special meetings, and emergency meetings as defined in policy number 1400.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Trayce Norman at 360-582-3262 or by email at [email protected].
