About the Board

North Kitsap School District Board of Directors is a local board, established by the Washington State Legislature. Although each of the five members comes from a different geographical area in the district, all board members are elected by all North Kitsap voters. Board members serve staggered four year-term. They may run for re-election for successive terms. The Board elects officers (president, vice-president and legislative representative) on an annual basis. North Kitsap School Board members currently serve without pay.
The legal responsibilities of the Board are to:
  • establish general policy for the school district
  • adopt and revise the annual operating budget
  • select and evaluate the Superintendent
  • employ school personnel upon the recommendation of the Superintendent
  • exercise the power to administer schools conferred by the state legislature
  • keep the public informed on the needs and progress of the education system

The School Board employs a professional team of administrators, teachers, and classified staff to carry out the day-to-day functions of the district.
