Welcome Auburn School District families to the 2019-20 school year. I hope you had a fun, relaxing summer.
We are beginning the third year of our strategic plan with work that supports our mission, “In a culture of equity and excellence, we engage, empower and educate each student for success beyond graduation.”
The priorities of our work this year are adopting a new curriculum, implementing Advancement Via Individual Determination (AVID) strategies at our middle schools, recruiting and retaining excellent staff, supporting before-and-after-school programs, engaging students and families, and providing graduation support.
Additionally, the new Olympic Middle School opens this fall, and construction is underway at Dick Scobee Elementary and Elementary No. 15 on Kersey Way SE. Later in the school year, we will name our new elementary school, convene an attendance boundary committee and present an enrichment and technology levy to voters for approval. Look for more information in the coming months.
Auburn students are lucky to have talented, committed teachers, excellent support staff and principals and a strong community. Together, we are making a difference in the lives of our children.
We look forward to serving you and your student during the upcoming year. I look forward to connecting with you in our wonderful community.
Dr. Alan Spicciati is superintendent of the Auburn School District.
