Shoreline School Board seeks applicants for open Board positions

Monday, September 14, 2020

District 2 (green) and District 3 (orange) have vacancies.
Directors must live within the boundaries of the district they are elected from

The Shoreline School Board of Directors is welcoming interested community members to apply to be appointed to serve as school board directors in Director Districts 2 and 3

Directors for these two positions will be appointed through a selection process to include an application, an interview and a vote by current school board directors. 

The timeline for this process is as follows:
  • September 14: Applications available
  • October 14 at 5:00 pm: Applications deadline
  • October 24, 26, 28 and 29: Interviews with candidates selected for interviews
  • November 2: School Board votes on candidates
  • November 18-20: Selected candidates are encouraged to attend the Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) Conference. November 18 is New Board Member Boot Camp. The conference will be virtual and costs will be covered by the school district
  • December 7: Selected board directors are sworn in.
  • A schedule of this year’s board meetings can be found here. Please note that additional meetings, study sessions, and hearings are scheduled as needed.

Being a school board director is an incredible way to serve the students, families, staff and community of the Shoreline School District.

It does require a significant time commitment outside of meeting time to stay engaged with issues and the community, read board packets in preparation for meetings and attend professional development opportunities. 

These are unpaid positions but each board member may receive compensation of fifty dollars ($50.00) per day or portion thereof for attending board meetings and for performing other services on behalf of the school district, not to exceed four thousand eight hundred dollars ($4,800.00) per year.
