    Meeting Information

    The South Whidbey School District Board usually meets twice monthly unless otherwise stated. All meetings are held in the Community Board Room on the South Whidbey Elementary School Campus, unless otherwise stated. The monthly Board Workshop is held on the second Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. The Workshop 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 Business Meeting. Action is taken at the Board Business Meeting and may be taken at a Special Business Meeting on a Workshop date. The Regular Board Business Meeting is held on the fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. These meetings are used for board communications, business, and administration.

    Public participation is an integral part of successful schools. Meeting agendas are prepared by the board chair and superintendent and are available on our web site prior to meetings. The community is encouraged to attend.
