Description

The Sunnyside School District Board of Directors consists of five citizens of the school district. Each is elected for a four-year term from the specific director district in which he or she resides. Any adult may run for election to the board if he or she can meet certain legal qualifications. School board members attend meetings, keep communications open with members of the community and make policy decisions that have a direct impact on what and how Sunnyside children learn. School board members are also responsible for maintaining buildings and grounds, balancing the budget, protecting the district's legal interests, and planning for the future. Regular meetings of the school board are held on the last Thursday of each month. A schedule of all regular meetings is available from the Superintendent's Office. Meetings are held at the Denny Blaine Boardroom, 810 E. Custer Ave. Meetings begin at 7:30 p.m. and last about two hours.

Application Guidelines
The filing window for this position begins the Monday two weeks prior to Memorial Day and ends on the Friday of that week (5 days). Candidacy filing papers can be acquired at and are submitted to either the county elections office or the Secretary of State Office in Olympia. For non-partisan offices, if there is only two candidates filed for a position they will run against each other in the November election. If more than two candidates file for a non-partisan office, than the non-partisan office will go through the August primary and the top two vote getters will advance to the November election for the seat. For a partisan office, the candidates will run in the August primary even if only two people are participating. This may create scenarios where the same candidates participate for the same seat in the August primary and November election. For any further questions, the Yakima County Elections office can be reached at 509-574-1340 or iVote@co.yakima.wa.us and the Secretary of State Office can be reached at (360) 902-4151 or mail@sos.wa.gov. ***Washington is one of the only states with online filing for candidacy.
