Board Members for Calendar Year 2014

There are five school board members, each elected from the district at large to serve a six-year term. Terms are staggered so that no more than two positions will be open at one time.
 
In addition to reviewing and adopting all school district policies, the Tacoma Public Schools Board of Directors selects and appoints the superintendent, sets direction for the district and has the authority to enter into written contracts.
