School Districts

Yakima County is divided into 17 separate school districts, each governed by a
five-member board of directors who serve regular four (4) year terms. Their responsibilities focus on four areas: Quality of instruction, district planning, policy development and communications. Directors are local policy makers and serve as a link between the school system and the public.

Board members are elected in a nonpartisan general election by all voters within the school district. They receive no salary. Board members are partners in a management team and share in a variety of management decisions from fiscal accounting, employment of teachers, educational materials, and facilities to transportation services.

School directors are called upon to be leaders in the following areas:
     √ assessing and reflecting the educational needs and values of the community;
     √ developing an educational philosophy;
     √ establishing school district goals;
     √ providing for program development activities;
     √ reviewing the financial needs of the districts;
     √ assuring systematic review and evaluation of all phases of the school program

As your School Board Director, I will serve with experience, integrity and honesty.

Thank you for your vote,

Maria J. Bosworth

I’m Maria Bosworth, I have six children 4-18, all present or future West Valley students.  My husband and I have lived in West Valley for 18 years.  We are involved in our community and teaching our children they can make a difference.

IT IS OUR DUTY to make a difference.  That’s why I am offering to serve.

My primary concerns:

SECURITY-current drive by security has no authority to stop illegal activity.

COMMON CORE EDUCATION - does not allow teachers to teach.

I am determined to make our schools secure.  I will work with other leaders to overturn common core education.
