SKSD board sworn in, reorganizes

Gattenby will serve as board president, Sebren VP

PORT ORCHARD — At the South Kitsap School District board of directors’ meeting on Dec. 4, three directors newly elected to the board on Nov. 5 were sworn into office.

Board member Eric Gattenby, who was appointed to fill Seward Stevens’ vacancy, took the oath of office alongside new directors Jeff Daily and John Berg.

The five-member school board’s members are elected by voters in separate districts. According to the school district, the board of directors organizes each December into five governing roles: president, vice president, legislative representative, Washington Interscholastic Activities Association (WIAA) representative, and Washington State School Directors Association (WSSDA) delegate.

The board also took action to reorganize their roles, with Gattenby elected to serve as president, Liz Sebren as vice president, John Berg as legislative representative, Rebecca Diehl as WSSDA delegate and Daily as WIAA representative.

The South Kitsap School District has 16 schools and serves approximately 9,500 students in grades K-12. SKSD is the largest employer in Port Orchard with more than 1,500 employees.
