• Dr. Alan Spicciati 2020 Superintendent Message, January 2024

    Dear Auburn School District Community:

    As we welcome a new year, I am grateful for the support and commitment of our amazing community. Auburn is a very special place.

    Each day we work to fulfill our vision to be a district where students are seen and valued for who they are now while developing their full academic and social potential to prepare them for the future they choose.

    As we approach the midpoint of the year, I’d like to share some of our celebrations and let you know what’s coming up for the rest of the year. 

    We had a wonderful community event at Terminal Park Elementary as we opened the final school from the 2016 Building for Learning Bond, on-time and on-budget. We are expanding experiential learning across the system and Junior Achievement is a key partner in providing an amazing experience and for students to learn financial literacy. We are lucky to have a committed, supportive school board that earned a Board of Distinction award again this year.

    For the first time in Auburn’s history, the Washington State Teacher of the Year is one of our amazing teachers. Blaire Penry, currently at Olympic Middle School, earned this recognition for 2024.

    In February, Auburn School District voters will be asked to vote on an Educational Programs and Operations levy that replaces the levy that expires this year. The levy provides 14% of our budget and the tax rate does not increase. I encourage everyone to vote by February 13. 

    I am proud to lead the Auburn School District and am looking forward to a great 2024. I wish you and your family a Happy New Year!


    Dr. Alan Spicciati
