Students gain voice on South Whidbey school board

Advising the school board may become a duty for two students next school year in the South Whidbey School District.

The school board will review a policy to add two students to its ranks at its workshop Wednesday night. The student representatives would not have a vote in district business nor would they attend executive sessions, and would be expected to attend all meetings.

Another policy regarding medication at school is scheduled for discussion. There will also be an update to the district’s involvement in the pre-disaster mitigation project through the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, which was funded by a grant from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

The workshop begins at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 9 in the board meeting room at the South Whidbey Primary Campus.
