Director - District 2

Mr. Jim Weiss

Mr. Weiss
My wife, Sue, and I have lived in the High Clover neighborhood for 21 years and raised our daughters, Haley and Heidi, through Arlington Public Schools. Our twin grandsons, Aaden and Blake, currently attend Presidents Elementary and love it. Our youngest grandson, Grayson (1 year old), will be joining his cousins in Arlington Public Schools when his time comes.

I have proudly served on the School Board for 14 years and am in my fourth term. My wife is a member of the Arlington City Council. We have seen many good ideas and changes come to Arlington. The relationships of the School District, City of Arlington, and Cascade Valley Hospital have grown to allow us to feed off each other in collaborations that many of our peers envy. All three organizational structures recognize the value of the collective and the sense of community that each brings. It truly does take a village to raise a child.

I grew up in Marysville and joined the US Air Force for four years. From the USAF, I went to work at Bayliner building boats. With my Air Force and Bayliner experience, I went to work at The Boeing Company. I am currently a Senior Manufacturing Engineer assigned to the 777-9 program supporting engineering releases. We are responsible for ensuring our suppliers are meeting the requirements of the various regulatory agencies and building a leading edge airplanes for the flying public. I enjoy golfing, fishing, camping, biking, and just about everything else. When I am not working, I can be found following the Mariners, Aquasox, Silvertips, and of course, the Green Bay Packers. I also enjoy watching the various high school activities and sports, cheering them on.
