The monthly Board Workshop is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the South Whidbey Elementary School Campus, if needed. The Board Business Meeting is generally used for more detailed discussion of issues, board business, building reports, staff presentations, etc. requiring more time than would be possible at the regular business meeting. Action may be taken at the Board Business Meeting. The Regular Board Meeting is held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room of the South Whidbey Elementary School Campus. These meetings are used for board communications, business, and administration.
