Board Members, Goals & Policies

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.

All staff are valued and outstanding performance is recognized.

An open, positive, professional environment cultivates confidence, respect and trust.

School Board Policies

Board policies are stored in BoardDocs for easy viewing. Click on the link below and then link on the “Policies” tab, and then on the “Active” tab.

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: http://www.atg.wa.gov/open-government-resource-manual

Serving on the school board

The Washington State School Directors’ Association and Battle Ground Public Schools have prepared information for residents who are curious to learning more about the role of a school board member.
