School Board

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
  • Review progress on district goals
  • Adopt a balanced budget every year
  • Approve textbooks and other instructional materials
  • Represent you and represent the district


Directors normally hold one regular business meeting each month, typically on the fourth Wednesday of the month, at 6:00 p.m. These meetings are generally held at the Teaching and Learning Center, 1400 NE McWilliams Road, Bremerton. Formal action is taken during business meetings. We welcome you to join us and share your comments at our regular board meetings either in person, online, or by phone.

Directors also hold topic-specific study sessions as needed. These meetings are typically held on the second Wednesday of the month. This schedule allows the board to be more efficient during its business meetings, while allowing time to focus more in depth on various issues facing our district. These meetings are open to the public in person, online, or by phone.

The board may also appoint members to committees, which meet separately.

We publish agendas within 24 hours of each meeting. You can find agendas and minutes from past meetings on our meeting agendas and minutes site.

Check our online calendar for upcoming meetings, or download our meeting schedule(pdf). 

Modifications are available for individuals with disabilities who wish to participate in school board meetings. Please contact the Superintendent’s Office at 360-662-1615 or [email protected] to learn more.
