Regular School Board Meetings are held at least monthly in the Board Room, near the west entrance of the Shoreline Center, 18560 1st Avenue NE, Shoreline, WA 98155. Regular meetings include presentations, action items, and an opportunity for comments from the community. Meetings vary in length according to the items on the agenda.

During the community comments interval at regular meetings, Shoreline School District parents, students, employees, or Shoreline/ Lake Forest Park residents may address the Board. Comments are limited to two minutes and speakers are asked to state their names and their relationship to the district, as well as follow some additional guidelines as outlined in Policy 1441. The Board especially enjoys hearing from Shoreline students.

Regular (Business Only) Meetings are held occasionally so that the Board can vote on a consent agenda or action item. These meetings are brief and do not have reports or presentations.

Study Sessions, which do not include official votes or action, are held as needed to inform the Board about projects or ongoing issues. Study Sessions are held before regular meetings.

Executive Sessions, if needed, generally follow regular meetings. According to policy and laws, “all meetings shall be open to the public with the exception of executive sessions authorized by law. Any action will be taken at an open meeting.” (Policy 1440)

The community is welcome to attend Shoreline School Board meetings to see what they are like and to be better informed about the workings of the District.
