Index School Board
Index School District is governed by a board of directors consisting of five community members who are accountable to and elected by the Index community. The School Board provides direction to their superintendent and generally advises on budgetary, program policy, and staff members. The Board invites you to attend meetings on the third Tuesday of each month. All members of our school board are committed to seeing the best education for your children. Notices of school board meetings are posted on the reader board at the local store and the front door of the school.
As of July 1, 2023, Index School District has completed their budget for the 2023-2024 fiscal year.

Seat 4, Expires 2023
I was born in North Texas and stumbled upon the wonderful town of Index some 24 years later. I met my partner here and we never really left. We live in Index with our young child, Izaiah, and a surly cat named Oscar.
I graduated college with the intention of becoming a teacher, after long term substituting and teaching for a year in a youth prison in Colorado, I made my way back to school where I earned my Masters in Teaching from Seattle University. I am currently a stay-at-home Dad until Zay goes off to school. I am a staunch supporter and advocate for equitable, inclusive, public education that is student-centered and serves all students and the great community.
