Meet the School Board

  • The Federal Way School Board Members are your official elected local representatives in matters of public education.

    Each board member resides in a specific director district.  School directors are elected to four-year terms by voters of the entire school district.

    The board establishes the district goals, policies and budget. The superintendent and school staff translate these policies and goals into action which results in quality education for students in the Federal Way Public Schools.
