Workshop: Become a School Board Member

Wednesday, February 25, 2015

The Washington State School Directors' Association (WSSDA) will hold a series of 14 workshops throughout Washington in March and April to encourage citizens to serve on their local school boards.

The Become a School Board Member workshops are free and will last two hours. They will provide an overview of the roles and responsibilities of a school director and how to file to become a candidate. WSSDA encourages anyone who has an interest in school board service to attend, especially potential candidates from ethnic and cultural groups that are traditionally underrepresented.

“We want to help people feel comfortable with the election process and understand the work of school directors,” said Alan Burke, WSSDA’s Executive Director. “We encourage anyone who has ever thought about running for school board to come and learn. There is no obligation to run after attending the workshops, but the workshops will be very informative for anyone considering it."

The workshops are scheduled for March and April, well before the May 12th filing week. Each workshop will run from 6:30pm to 8:30pm.
