School Board Overview
The local school board is a uniquely American institution that has made public schools flexible and responsive to the needs of local communities. It represents a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education.
The Issaquah School Board generally meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month with a few exceptions. Community linkage meetings and/or work study sessions are also held prior to board meetings throughout the school year.
The school board represents a continuing commitment to local citizen control and decision-making in education. Members focus on:
- Establishing school district goals;
- Providing for program development activities;
- Overseeing the financial affairs of the district;
- Adopting operating policies;
- Assuring systematic review and evaluation of all phases of the school program; and
- Advocating on behalf of students and schools, including legislative advocacy.
The Issaquah School Board has five members, elected for four-year terms. For more information on school boards, visit the Washington State School Directors' Association website.
