Ray Arment entered the Army as a graduate of the Pennsylvania State University Reserve Officer Training Corps program in 1970.
He served as one of the Army's first Equal Opportunity Officers. His extensive operational experience includes armor, infantry, and mechanized infantry leadership and staff positions, from platoon through division level, in Germany and the United States. He served as the senior intelligence staff officer at brigade, division, theater army and national level. While based in the Republic of Panama, he was the Senior Army Intelligence Officer for Central and South America. Immediately before becoming the Superintendent of Eatonville Community Schools in 1998, he was responsible for all national military intelligence for the Balkans for the Joint Chief's of Staff. The Eatonville School Board of Directors installed Mr. Arment as Superintendent of Eatonville School District in July 1998. At his 2010 retirement he was the longest serving superintendent in his original district in Pierce County, Washington. During his superintendency, the community passed three local tax levies totaling $34.2 million.

According to Eatonville School District Superintendent Ray Arment, the driver of this bus is now on " administrative leave" for a couple of reasons.
The driver, an eleven veteran of her profession, is devastated by the events of the morning. Arment told ENN, " The entire Eatonville education community is very concerned about the well-being of our injured high school student. We wish her all the best and pray for her swift recovery.

Also present were Superintendent Arment, Ralph Bell, Rick Thompson Tim Patterson, Darold Holden, and Student Representative Daniel Adams.
Superintendent Arment asked the students to help him award Certificates of Appreciation to the Board Members. Chairperson Heinz called a five-minute break to discuss the issue with Superintendent Arment at 7:27 pm. Also present were Mr. Ralph Bell, Mr. Tim Patterson, Mr. Darold Holden, Mr. Rick Thompson and Superintendent Ray Arment. Superintendent Arment clarified what the position entailed, qualifications required to complete the job and the period for completion of the project.

Superintendent Ray Arment explained that the school board must approve a donation of that size, as Legislative Director Ron Springer exclaimed "no problem" and the board unanimously approved the donation.
Arment explained that the third item of new business on the agenda was a request by him to consider the intent of Policy 4260 (Community Relations). Arment asked for the board's input on a portion of the policy pertaining to "school and child related groups and other government related agencies using school facilities". Examples of child and governmental groups defined in the policy are Scouts, Campfire, PTA, 4-H, city or county sponsored recreation programs, polling places, political caucuses and governmental groups. Fire District 15 had requested to use the high school physical training facilities, specifically the weight room, for job related training. Arment's question was whether it was the intent of the board's policy to allow FD15 to use the facilities in this way, and if so, should the same courtesy be extended to all fire districts, police and other emergency services in the Eatonville School District? Arment stated that if the answer was "Yes," his recommendation would be to limit the use to physical training that is work related conditioning and testing. Springer asked if the additional use would entail more hours worked by school district personnel; over-seeing the activities, cleaning up or merely unlocking and locking up the buildings, to which Arment replied "No. Arment said he had his answer and the board proceeded to the first order of business under the "work study" portion of the meeting, EHS math teacher Judy Hills and Spanish teacher Sharon Aguilar's student trip to Costa Rica. Arment gave a Power Point presentation explaining the state mandates that the funds will establish a "Student Achievement Fund", calling for responsible decisions that support learning improvement for students. Authorized uses for the funds include class size reduction in grades K - 5, extended learning opportunities in grades K - 12, professional development for educators, early childhood programs (birth - age 5) and improvements to buildings for class size reduction. Arment continued, explaining that due to timelines this year, the district office used the recommendations from last year, developing a package for faculty review and recommendations. He further explained, "The key word here is substantially improve student achievement", listing various programs that have been found through Meta-Analyses Research to substantially improve, modestly improve, programs with mixed or controversial results and programs that rarely or never show improved achievement. Arment noted that one mandated program, bilingual education, fell under the "mixed or controversial results" category. Arment explained that auditors and state law protect the ASB as they are funded significantly. Arment said he encourages the administration to move forward in changing the constitution to provide the most students an opportunity to be involved. Arment stated he wanted to call the board's attention to the investigation process, saying "We had the dogs in the school on Monday who found a couple items in the parking lot; one was some tobacco found in a car and some old bullet casings. Superintendent Ray Arment answered that the existing plan was developed during school year 1995-96 and is still being used. Director Rick Thompson asked Bridges to provide an example of the resources needed, to which Bridges responded, "There may be internal staff members combined with Ray (Arment), or with folks in the community who are able to take on the planning process, you need the budget and time. Arment suggested it might benefit the district in the short term to review and update the existing plan to determine, "What areas are enduring that we want to continue to work with, that at one time had a significant value to the community and move forward from there. At 7 p.m. the board moved into an unscheduled Executive Session with Superintendent Arment, EHS principal Garth Steedman and EHS Athletic Director Lewis Reese to discuss a personnel issue. Arment offered that the Cheer Constitution which the students, and the ASB have agreed to, is in charge of the program. Bass asked Crystal if she'd like to move into Executive Session and at 8:20 the board, along with Reese, Steedman, Arment, the LaRances, Kelly Brady and her mother moved into private session to discuss the personnel issue and complaint. The board heard the April Enrollment Report from Arment, who said the numbers were very encouraging at 1,981.35. Arment suggested the principals and athletic staff at the high and middle schools draft an athletic code to be given to the EC4 Committee for revision, who in turn would bring it before the board. Steedman stated he and Reese had planned to review at least the "grade check" portion of the current athletic code. Arment said a code needs to be drafted and the matter should not be let go for another school year. Arment explained this is a component of the bargaining agreement between the EEA (Eatonville Education Assoc.), the school employees and administrators. Arment explained that next year technology is coming up as a "curriculum review" item and they must have a Technology Plan in place. Under Superintendent's Comments, Arment announced that during the next board meeting the use of I-728 (gambling funds) will be open for public comment. Secondly, Arment said that last year Eatonville was the only school district in the state that had an Army Science Lab from the National Science Center at EES. Thirdly, he said, "We had a wonderful gift from Ohop Grange who gave each third grader, at all three elementary schools, a personal copy of a dictionary with each child's name in it. Holden raised the question of cost associated with conducting an open poll election and Superintendent Ray Arment confirmed the costs are significantly higher and suggested the board and Facilities Committee consider the use of a drop off box as used in the recent March 11 election. Moving for the adoption of Resolution 473 Chair Bass expressed his support of the Facilities Committee and their recommendations. Arment pointed out that the three busses and two vans, ranging in age from 1979 to 1993, are on the edge of the state mandate to retire all busses made prior to 1977 and they are no longer cost effective to maintain. He also pointed to the fact that as the state has already paid the district depreciation on the vehicles, regardless of what price the vehicles fetch at auction, the district must pay back that money to the state. Arment began by introducing Lucy Fountain, the district's Director Of Curriculum and Instruction Assessment. Arment noted that although Fincham is a resident of our school district, he is a "new hire" this year at the high school and has done a tremendous job. Arment began by explaining this is an annual, recurring resolution and states the district will abide by the WIAA rules and regulations. Arment stated he didn't think it advantageous for the district to be on the record with a letter of opposition for a proposal that "doesn't seem to meet the common sense test. He felt the board should request the Director of Legislative Affairs keep an eye on the proposal as it moves through the system and reconsider opposition if it looks as though the proposal is building momentum. Springer disagreed with Arment as he stated the proposal will be coming up in the process very, very soon and the legislature is in the later part of their sessions now, with budget currently being discussed. Arment conceded a letter to our legislators would be prudent, but not to the state's offices of education. Under Superintendent's Comments, Arment mentioned I-728 (gambling revenues) funding. The district was recently informed they would not be receiving as much funding as they had planned at the beginning of the year. They are losing a total of $40,000 as gambling revenue has been down for the second year in a row. Arment noted what a great year it's been for Tira Hancock and her achievement of National Board Certification. Arment responded that each threat is taken very seriously and the safety of the students and staff is paramount. He stated a couple of students involved in the threats at the high school have been expelled and are no longer in our district. Arment noted that in the history of American education numerous bomb threats have been received by schools, but none have ever resulted in a school being blown up. But, he continued, there are a couple of real risks about which he is concerned. One was an instance where students were properly evacuated from a school only to be shot by nearby snipers awaiting the evacuation. He expressed that this is a real risk and goes into the decision making of staff and student safety when they evacuate or remain in the buildings. Where the students and staff stand when evacuated must be cons
