Once a year, school board members have the opportunity to submit proposals to amend existing positions and create new ones. The 2020 window for submitting proposals opens March 13 and closes May 20.
School directors interested in teaming up with other boards/districts to work on a proposal together, can ask WSSDA staff to find a match. Working together can ease the creative process and help avoid multiple boards submitting multiple proposals on the same topic.
