one elected from each congressional district by local school boards,
one member elected by the directors of approved private schools,
and the Superintendent of Public Instruction. By State Board of
Education action, the Governor or a representative appointed by
the Governor and two high school students elected annually by
the Washington Association of Student Councils serve as ex officio
members of the Board.
The Board has a number of statutory public education policy responsibilities.
The major areas are: professional education and certification;
school construction; high school graduation requirements; and
Funds for staff support and expenses are provided through an appropriation
to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
