School Board Director Districts

Summary: The district is currently redistricting the School Board Director districts. The community is invited to review the draft map and provide feedback.

Feedback Needed: School Board Director Districts

Seattle Public Schools is currently redistricting the Seattle School Board Director districts. This means we’re redrawing the boundaries of existing school board director districts.  

This process will not impact where students go to school. Director district boundaries are different from school attendance area boundaries.  

What are School Board Director Districts?  

Director districts are the seven geographic areas in Seattle that school board directors must live in. Map of the seven director districts 

Every 10 years, SPS must redraw these districts to make sure each includes a nearly equal number of people. SPS uses data from the 2020 U.S. Census to determine director district boundaries. 

Draft Redistricting Plan

The Board’s Executive Committee has selected a draft redistricting plan from among three map options developed by the district’s redistricting consultant, FLO Analytics. The draft redistricting plan is being published here for public comment.

Share Your Feedback

To make sure we understand the communities’ priorities for redistricting, we are asking for public feedback. Please share your thoughts on communities you think are important to preserve.  

Please share your feedback through our Let’s Talk form on the draft redistricting plan and communities important to preserve in the redistricting process.

Community members will also be able to provide public comment in-person and virtually during upcoming School Board meetings on Wednesday, Sept. 28 and Wednesday, Oct. 26.  

School Board Directors 

All Seattle School Board Directors are elected citywide in the general election and charged with serving on behalf of the entire district. School Board Directors are responsible for serving all schools in SPS, not only those located in their represented district. 

Additional information is available on the School Board District Redistricting webpage.
