School Board

  • The Federal Way Public Schools (FWPS) Board of Directors are your official elected local representatives in matters of public education. For six years in a row, the FWPS Board have been chosen as a Board of Distinction by the Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA). In 2020, they were selected as the Large District Board of the Year.

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