Board Members
White River School District Board of Directors
The patrons of the White River School District are represented by a school board of five elected directors. Each director's term is for four years, with election dates staggered so that there are always at least two experienced members serving on the board. State law requires that the district be divided into five election areas of roughly equal population and that each director live within the boundaries of his/her area. Each director does, however, represent all patrons in the district.

White River School Board awarded Board of Distinction by WSSDA in November 2009, 2010, 2011, and 2012.
