Every four years we have the opportunity to participate in local civic elections, including the election of a local school board. We sometimes forget the incredible significance of this democratic opportunity.
It means that we elect and empower LOCAL VOICES (people from our community, people we know and trust) to guide LOCAL CHOICES (to shape the values and directions of our local schools). Having a local board determine the mission and core values of WSD schools, and having a local board which can set a budget that reflects our community’s priorities is a privilege we should not take for granted.
