The Lake Stevens School District's Board of Directors welcomes and encourages student, staff, family and community involvement in all matters regarding our schools and the education of our students. You are welcome to join us at one or all of our school board meetings that generally take place the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at the Educational Service Center in the Community Room and/or via Zoom. The first meeting of the month is dedicated to student and staff recognition as well as the normal business meeting. Please check Board meeting times and agendas prior to each meeting.

Public comment: In accordance with Board policy, people who wish to address the Board will be given three minutes to do so. During public comments, the Board listens, but does not engage in conversation with the speaker.

For more information on our board meetings, please call Sandy Pollestad at 425-335-1502. You can also email the school board.

Student Advisory Council (SACo)

The Student Advisory Council (SACo) is a student driven organization that is dedicated to providing student voice on important matters being considered by the School Board. In addition to providing valuable student prospective, members of the SACo will collaborate with Board members and district administrators on important decisions with the ultimate purpose of building student leadership capacity.
