Director Boundaries

Every ten years after the census is completed, school districts in Washington state must adjust director districts. School board members are elected at large but must live in a specific director district that is equal in population. The legal descriptions for the newly aligned director districts can be found below:
There shall be one director from each of five director districts as established by the Regional Committee on School District Organization. One director shall reside in each of the respective director districts. All directors shall be elected by voters in the entire school district. A map showing director district boundaries shall be developed and made available to candidates for the board and other citizens. The director districts are described as follows:
