The Blaine School Board is a local board, established by the Washington State Legislature. Although each of the five members comes from a different geographical area in the district, all board members are elected by all Blaine School District voters. Board members serve a four-year term without pay. Click here to view a full map of the geographical areas represented by each director. Detailed director district descriptions are also linked from the board member profiles shown below.
The board's primary task is to formulate and evaluate general policies for the operation of the school district. The board's legal responsibilities are to:
Establish general policy for the school district
Adopt and revise the annual operating budget
Select the Superintendent of Schools
Exercise the power to administer schools conferred by the state legislature
Keep the public informed on the needs and progress of the education system.
The Blaine School Board encourages the public to take an active part in the educational affairs of the district and extends an invitation to the community to attend school board meetings. All board meetings are open to the public, with the exception of the executive sessions where personnel, property acquisition, sales, litigation or collective bargaining matters are discussed. Individuals with disabilities who may need a modification to participate in a meeting should contact the Superintendent’s Office no later than three days before a regular meeting and as soon as possible in advance of a special meeting so that special arrangements can be made.
The board's regular monthly meeting takes place in the District Boardroom at 7:00 p.m. on the 4th Monday of each month, except in December and when there is a conflict with a holiday.
