Next Meetings

May 16, 2022          June 6, 2022

You will find the agenda and Zoom information posted 48 hours prior to the meeting.

All board meetings will be held at 6:30 p.m.  The meetings are currently being held at Enumclaw High School's Auditorium located at 226 Semanski Street South, Enumclaw, Washington unless otherwise posted.

Additionally, there will be no action taken at any of the board workshops unless that information is posted. The intent of the special workshop sessions is to allow the board members time to review policies, discuss programs and allow time for questions and answers.



About the Board

The school board consists of five members who are elected by voters in the Enumclaw school district. The members must live not only within the school district boundaries, but they must also live within the district boundaries they service. They serve a four year term. We also have two EHS student board members.  Learn more about our school board members.

Regular School Board meetings are generally held on the third Monday of each month, and each agenda is posted 48 hours prior to the meeting. 

Special Board Workshops/Work Study meetings are generally held on the first Monday of each month, and they provide an opportunity for the Board of Directors to visit each of our schools to learn how the strategic plan and district initiatives are applied to achieve the district mission of "Inspiring students to learn, lead and impact their community and the world."

Role of the Board

School directors work together to oversee the school district. As a board, their primary responsibilities are:

  • Hire, supervise and evaluate the superintendent.
  • Set the vision, mission and strategic goals for the district.
  • Review, revise and adopt policies.
  • Establish and oversee the budget.
  • Serve as community representatives.
  • Monitor the district’s progress towards its goals.

Legislative Representative

The legislative representative serves as the board’s liaison with the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA) on legislative issues.

The legislative representative will:

  • Represent the board at WSSDA’s Legislative Assembly, conveying local views and concerns to that body and, when appropriate, obtaining their board’s support for a legislative proposal to be submitted to the Assembly and supporting it at the Assembly.
  • Monitor proposed school legislation and provide legislative updates periodically at board meetings.
  • Build relationships with local policy makers regarding WSSDA’s legislative positions and priorities.
