NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

Director District Boundary Changes Proposed
Affects school board elections only, not schools

Every ten years, after each U.S. Census is completed, school districts must review the boundaries of their board of director districts to ensure equitable geographic representation.  Colville School District is divided into five geographic regions or districts, one for each board seat.  Candidates for school board must run for the seat of the director district they live in.  By creating five equal director districts, geographic diversity is ensured on the school board.  Each position is elected by all district voters, so each of the five directors represents the entire district in their board actions.

These boundaries are completely unrelated to school attendance boundaries:  this process will not change any neighborhood school boundaries.

A presentation and public hearing on this proposal will be held at the July 27, 2022 regular school board meeting, which begins at 6 p.m. and the potential adoption of the proposal is scheduled for the August 24, 2022 regular board meeting.  The board must adopt new director districts by November 15, 2022.
