Thank you to School Board for local meetings

Your notices in the Mercer Island Reporter on June 23, covering both your regular meeting on Thursday, June 24, and your special meeting on Monday, June 28, are excellent examples of the communication an elected body should have with its citizens. Listing agenda items and issues in the notices, as you have done, helps citizens be informed. Holding the special meeting in the district, at the Mercer Island High School library, makes it easier for Mercer Island residents to attend.

As an organization dedicated to strengthening democracy through encouraging informed citizen participation in governmental decision-making, we commend your recent actions to inform citizens and to accommodate their attendance at School Board meetings, including special meetings.
