Interested in running for a seat on the school board?   


If so, you are encouraged to attend an upcoming informational session. Educational Service District 112, in partnership with the Washington State School Directors' Association (WSSDA), will host a School Board Candidate Information Night on Monday, May 8, 2017 from 6:30-7:30 PM at ESD 112's Conference and Institute Center, 2500 NE 65th Ave, Vancouver. 

The program will feature a presentation by Tim Garchow, Executive Director for WSSDA, who will talk about the roles and responsibilities of a school board member. After his remarks, a panel of current school board members will discuss opportunities and challenges associated with serving as a school director. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and engage with other board members at the event. RSVPs are encouraged but are not required to attend the event. Please email wendy.niehaus@esd112.org to RSVP or if you have any questions.

The Information belongs to the public

While parts of personnel and student records are private, much of the information gathered and recorded by school districts, as with any government agency in Washington, is a matter of public record and open to public scrutiny. Likewise, meetings of the elected members of the School Board are open except under certain circumstances. The Washington attorney general has created a guide to both laws, accessible at: www.atg.wa.gov/OpenGovernment/InternetManual.aspx


Battle Ground Public Schools are governed by a five-person elected Board of Directors. They serve four-year terms, with three of the terms expiring in a given odd-numbered year and the other two expiring in the next odd-numbered year. That ensures experience and continuity on the Board.


Each director resides in a separate one of five geographic divisions of the 271-square-mile district, thereby guaranteeing a geographic balance on the Board. In both primary and general elections, all registered voters in the entire school district are eligible to vote in all of the races on that year’s ballot. Under state law, the office of school board director is nonpartisan.
