School Board

NOTICE: The Central Kitsap School District Board of Directors will abide by Governor Inslee's Proclamation 20-28, "prohibiting any public agency from conducting any meeting subject to RCW 42.30 unless (a) the meeting is not conducted in-person and instead provided an option(s) for the public to attend the proceedings through, at minimum, telephonic access, and may also include other electronic, internet or other means of remote access, and (b) provides the ability for all persons attending the meeting to hear each other at the same time." Members of the public can attend meetings remotely or by phone. Visit the BoardDocs agendas & minutes website for details.

Public comments will continue under the emergency OPMA rules. While these rules are in effect, individuals may submit public comments by completing this Central Kitsap School District Public Comment Form prior to a board meeting.

The school board president will note topics that were submitted prior to the board meeting. All public comment submissions will be provided to each board member. Please be aware that comment forms are considered a public document. Comments will be posted after each board meeting to the CKSD website under Administration > School Board > Public Comments During Emergency OPMA Rules for COVID-19. If you have questions about public comments, please email kimk@ckschools.org

As a Central Kitsap voter, you elect five school board directors to:

  • Hire and evaluate superintendents
  • Set policies that set standards and a framework for governing the district
  • Reviews progress on district goals
  • Adopt a balanced budget every year
  • Approve textbooks and other instructional materials
  • Represent you and represent the district

Meetings

Directors normally meet on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 6:00 p.m. Most meetings are held at the Teaching and Learning Center, 1400 NE McWilliams Road, Bremerton. We welcome you to join us and share your comments at our regular board meetings.

Directors also hold occasional study sessions before meetings to learn about and discuss topics in depth. The board may also appoint members to committees, which meet separately.

We publish agendas two days before each meeting. You can find agendas and minutes from past meetings on our meeting agendas and minutes site.
