Boundary Maps

Board members serve in staggered four-year terms. School board members must be citizens of the United States and qualified voters residing in one of the five geographic "director districts." They are elected, however, by nonpartisan popular vote from the total  school district.


Every 10 years, after each U.S. Census is completed, school districts must review the boundaries of their board of director districts to ensure equitable geographic representation. The Olympia School District is made up of five geographic regions (districts), one for each board seat. Candidates for school board must run for the seat of the director district they live in.


The Olympia School District contracted with Sammamish Data Systems to develop a proposal for new director district boundaries based on the latest census data. The school board approved the new director district boundaries on September 8, 2022. The new director district boundaries are reflected in the maps and legal descriptions shown below.
