Director District Boundary Changes Proposed 

Affects school board elections only

Enumclaw, Wash. – Every ten years, after each U.S. Census is completed, school districts must review the boundaries of their board of director districts to ensure equitable geographic representation. Enumclaw School District is divided into five geographic regions or districts, one for each board seat. Candidates for school board must run for the seat of the director district they live in. By creating five equal director districts, considering population density, equal representation is ensured on the school board. Each position is elected by all district voters, so each of the five directors represents the entire district in their board actions.

These boundaries are completely unrelated to school attendance boundaries: this process will not change any neighborhood school boundaries.

The district contracted with Sammamish Data Systems to develop a proposal for new director district boundaries based on the latest census data. Since the last realignment of director districts, there has been a shift in population growth.

A public hearing on this proposal will be held at the November 21, 2022 school board meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m. Current and proposed maps are available on the district website,
