About this race

This school district which covers an area in Spokane Valley north of I-90 and east to the state line has three contested seats this year. Since 2010, the district has seen a change to a K-8 teaching model which eliminated the district’s two middle schools. Supporters believe the plan will give students more opportunities academically, athletically and socially, while opponents of the plan believe the district doesn’t have the infrastructure to support more students in each building. The position pays a stipend of $50 per meeting, with a maximum of $4,800 per year.
