Our District Mission Statement:

Cultivating a safe, inclusive, supportive learning environment that engages the whole student in a community that promotes collaboration, communication, and academic achievement through critical thinking and problem-solving. Reaching our highest potential. Together.

The Hood Canal School District Board of Directors is offering its meetings via Zoom meetings for interested community members to attend during the Coronavirus pandemic. Community members wishing to make comments at a board meeting can contact the Board Chair, Edie Reclusado, at [email protected]. Questions and comments will be read during the meeting. If attending the meeting remotely, please mute your microphone unless you have been called upon and prompted to speak.

Board of Directors

The Board of Directors consists of five Board members each elected to serve a four-year term. The terms overlap two years each and are unpaid. Candidates are elected from director districts; together they represent the entire Hood Canal School District. Each year the Board elects a Board Chair, Vice Chair and Legislative Representative.

Duties of the Board

Operating within the legal parameters of the state and federal constitutions, statutes, courts, and administrative agencies, the Board is charged with the responsibility of providing the finest educational programs for the students in the Hood Canal School District. School Board Directors make all final decisions regarding school priorities, policies, personnel, curriculum, expenditures and growth management. Directors adopt a budget, which is necessary to maintain and operate the schools, levy taxes to help support the budget and submit bond issues to finance construction projects to the citizens of the district.

Board Goals 2022-2024

  • LITERACY: Using an identified, vertically aligned common, and comprehensive literacy curriculum that reflects the common core standards, Hood Canal students K through 8th grade will receive predictable and cohesive instruction in the five pillars of literacy - phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency and comprehension, resulting in increased levels of academic achievement.
  • COMMUNICATION: Expecting effective, timely communication from administration, teachers, the School Board, and Superintendent. Effective communication will be ongoing throughout the school year in the form of official website postings, brochures, newsletters, and media to parents, local businesses and community in an effort to share the district vision, school events, boards goals, student achievement celebrations, and community activities.
  • ATTENDANCE: Implementing an approach that will encourage punctual daily attendance for staff and students, attendance rates at HCS will significantly improve at all grade levels, in an effort to positively impact continuation of a guaranteed viable curriculum, consistently improved instructional strategies, and overall increased levels of student academic performance.
  • DISTRICT CULTURE: Building trust, compassion, honesty and transparency, all key stakeholders (Superintendent, Board Directors, Administrators, teachers, support, paraeducators, food service and transportation staff, students, parents and community members) will become a cohesive dedicated team that works together in service to our children.
