ALERT:  BOARD PASSES EMERGENCY RESOLUTION AT MARCH 19, 2020 REGULAR BUSINESS MEETING
View resolution

School board members are elected to four-year terms. Three board members are elected based on geographic areas, and two are elected to at-large positions. Maps of the director districts and a narrative description of the district boundaries are available to download on the list to the left.

The Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) offers leadership, advocacy and services to support public school directors' efforts to improve student learning. Helpful information for school board candidates can be found at WSSDA's website: http://www.wssda.org.  

The Port Townsend School District Board of Directors meet twice a month (usually the first and third Thursday) in Room S-11, Gael Stuart Building, 1610 Blaine Street.  Meetings normally begin at 5:30 p.m. The Board may also call for an Executive Session (which is closed to the public) during the meeting.  Some meetings may be at school building sites, which will be indicated in the announcement of the meeting on www.ptschools.org

The first meeting of the month is a Work/Study session. At this session the Board will do in-depth study on a variety of topics. This format will allow more informal interaction with the audience regarding the items on the agenda. The second meeting of the month will be a regular business meeting. Action will be taken at that meeting. On months with only one board meeting (December and July) the meeting will be a regular business meeting.
Board members are interested in your thoughts and ideas on how to continuously improve our school district. Please click on Directors and Districts to the left to view individual director's pages for more information.

To address the board collectively, email can be sent to sboard@ptschools.org. Email sent to this address will be included as correspondence on the agenda of the next board meeting. In order to appear on an agenda, all written communication (via letter or email) must be in the district office by noon on the Monday before the Thursday meeting. (Note: The board does not accept anonymous correspondence.)

Upon three days' notice that such services are required, the District will provide interpretation services at public meetings organized or sponsored by the District (e.g. board meetings).

If you have questions about communicating in writing with the school board, please contact the district office at 360 379-4501.
