WASHOUGAL — Washougal school board members were recognized for their dedication to their jobs in January as part of School Board Appreciation Month. Throughout the school year, school board members visit Washougal schools to observe impacts of board decisions, understand how educational improvement strategies play out and engage with students and staff. Board members review the school goals prior to the visit and conclude each visit with a debrief.
“We value opportunities to engage on-site with students and teachers very highly,” said Cory Chase, board president. “It helps us to make decisions that best serve our students and our community.” Board members are Cory Chase, Jim Cooper, Angela Hancock, Sadie McKenzie and Chuck Carpenter.
The Washougal School Board has been recognized by the Washington State School Directors Association as a Board of Distinction two years in a row.
