The Mercer Island School Board is an elected body of five directors who oversee the operations of the , led by the district superintendent.

While this is a special meeting, regularly scheduled school board meetings usually begin at 7 p.m. every second and fourth Thursday of the month, in the school district administration building's board room.

This is a very, very important meeting. The agenda shows these items: a. Review and discuss three (3) school options for mega-block planning b. Review and discuss costs for MIHS classroom addition; Mary Wayte Pool renovation; and MIHS Stadium Upgrades c. Discussion of community-wide engagement Note that *action may take place at this meeting*. Also, Public Input has been put at the END of the meeting (8:00-8:30) AFTER any potential decisions may have been made. This meeting was actually originally part of a tour of a new MIHS 500 hall addition, but after several complaints, they moved it back to the Board Room (detailed on www.misdboardwatch.wordpress.com). Again, this meeting could be the turning point for the Board towards one option or another.

No, school board meetings are not usually televised like City Council meetings. This meeting will be held at the administration building in the board room.
