School Board

Bellevue School District Board

 

About the Board

Five community members make up the Bellevue School District’s Board of Directors, one from each of the five geographical districts. The board members are elected to their posts by registered voters for terms of four years.

The School Board has fundamental governance responsibilities that fall into four major areas:

  • vision
  • accountability
  • structure
  • advocacy

Although it provides overall governance of the district, the Board employs and empowers a professional staff of administrators led by a strong superintendent of schools to carry out the district’s daily functions and to pursue its short and long range goals. Once a year, typically in December, the board chooses its president, vice president, liaison to the Bellevue Schools Foundation, legislative liaison, liaison to the City of Bellevue's Youth Link board, and a representative to hear disciplinary appeals.

 

Board Meeting Information

 

The regular meetings of the Board of Directors will be held at least once a month, according to a yearly schedule adopted in advance by the Board. Adjustments may be made to the schedule as long as they are posted at least two weeks in advance.

Audio is recorded at the Board Meetings. At Board meetings, complaints about specific personnel will not be heard in open session.
