Amending & Proposing Positions
The legislative and permanent positions, together with the bylaws and operating policies, form the governing foundations of WSSDA. Once a year, school board members submit proposals for amending existing positions or creating new ones. The 2019 window for submitting proposals opens March 29 and closes May 10.
