Board Members

Members of the Richland School Board are elected by our community to four-year terms.

Face Coverings Required At Board Meetings

Proclamation 20-28.14 from Gov. Jay Inslee requires Richland School Board to enforce COVID-19 precautions, including the requirement that individuals wear face coverings, for all in-person components of board meetings to comply with the Open Public Meetings Act (OPMA). Failure to comply with this requirement by continuing to hold a board meeting while attendees are not wearing face coverings will invalidate any decisions made by the Board at that meeting and potentially incur penalties upon the district and Board.

Face masks are available to those attending all board meetings. All meetings also may be viewed or listened to remotely via Zoom.
