Superintendent MessageDear Auburn School District Families:
Welcome to the Auburn School District! I would like to highlight some successes and let you know what’s coming up in the future.
First, we have record enrollment this year, almost 16,500 students in our 22 schools. Auburn is a great place to live and raise a family and our enrollment shows it!
Our incredible community passed a $456 million bond in November, 2016 and we are now on the path to replacing six of our aging schools and building two new elementary schools. We will break ground on the new Olympic Middle School in March. The support and strong commitment of our community will contribute to our success for generations.
Last June, our School Board adopted a new strategic plan to guide us through the coming years. The plan was created with staff and diverse community input and will guide our work for the next five years. We have three big goals of increased attendance and engagement, high achievement and 100 percent graduation for each student. Look for more information about our progress towards these lofty goals.
This fall, we achieved our goal of targeted 1:1 technology for all students thanks to the technology levy passed in 2014. Students are not just learning how to use technology, they are learning how to learn with technology. It is transforming personalized learning for all students.
In Auburn, we want each student to be successful and are looking at everything we do with a lens of equity. A large contingent of teachers, principals, support staff and administrators are participating in deep equity training to provide more tools to close the achievement gaps for students of every race and family income level. We will continue building relationships to engage, educate and empower all students.
I am so thankful to be leading this district through these exciting times. I look forward to meeting you in our wonderful community.
Dr. Alan Spicciati
