Public Comments
At regular board meetings, the Board welcomes comments from citizens (either in person or via Zoom) during Citizens’ Comments and asks that those wishing to address the Board observe the following process:

  • Email your first and last name, contact phone number, home address, email address, and the topic you will be addressing to In addition, please note if you will be addressing the board remotely via Zoom or in-person.

  • To join the Zoom meeting, type your first and last name that was provided in your notice.
  • Individual comments shall not exceed three minutes.

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:

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.
