School board members renew positions with South Whidbey School District

Lots of things are shaking up in the South Whidbey School District with a pair of levy requests coming in February.

But the school board will remain the same. Board members nominated and approved each of their official and unofficial positions at Wednesday’s meeting.

Steve Scoles, who has served as a board member for several terms, will chair the board for a second year.

Linda Racicot, in only her second year, will again serve as the vice chair and board auditor.

Veteran Board Member Fred O’Neal was again appointed to be the board’s legislative representative. O’Neal has planned trips to Washington, D.C. and Olympia for educational rallies.

Second-year board member Damian Greene will be the district’s Washington Interscholastic Activities Association rep.

Jill Engstrom agreed to re-up as the board’s policy representative.

“Most boards don’t have a policy rep,” O’Neal said. “And most boards don’t have policies as robust and up-to-date as ours.”
