If you would like to help support our local public schools, we invite you to learn more about us. We usually meet once a month on a Saturday morning at the South Whidbey Community Center. (During the pandemic we are meeting via Zoom online).
Board members serve three-year terms and help plan and produce two to three community outreach events a year.
