The Olympia School District Board of Directors welcomes your interest in our school district.

The public is encouraged to attend school board meetings, and a time is set aside for public comment near the start of each regularly-scheduled meeting. Meeting agendas outlining the topics the board is scheduled to discuss or take action on are available at every board meeting and in advance on the district website


In light of the COVID-19 situation and public health concerns, all Olympia School District Board Meetings, Special Meetings, and Work Sessions will be conducted remotely via online by video and/or phone conferencing until further notice. This is consistent with the Governor's Proclamation 20-28.4, which currently prohibits public agencies from conducting meetings subject to the Open Public Meetings Act in-person to curtail the spread of COVID-19, and consistent with School Board Resolution No. 605. For public comment, please see your options below:
