• Thank you for your interest in contacting the Blaine County School District Board of Trustees.  The Board values your input and feedback.

    Individual trustees are bound by Idaho Statute, BCSD Code of Ethics, and governance guidelines which require them to use discretion when engaging with each other and the public.

    Please keep the following in mind when contacting trustees:

    • Complaints or grievances about Blaine County School District employees should not be communicated directly to Board members. The information that you provide to trustees may hinder their ability to act in a judicial manner if the employee were to be disciplined. If you need assistance, please contact the Clerk of the Board at 208-578-5003.
    • You may not receive a lengthy response from Board members. Please share your thoughts and opinions but understand the trustee will not engage in discussion with you via email, phone, or other forms of communication as this could lead to deliberation outside of a public meeting. Because of this, you may only receive acknowledgement that your communication was received.  
    • Your written communication with Board members is considered a public document and subject to public record requests.
    • If you share information with a trustee regarding an upcoming decision, they must disclose the information shared along with the source of the information if it is used to form the basis of his/ her decision. This means that your name and the information you shared may be disclosed in open session and made part of the public record.
