Superintendent MessageDear Auburn School District Families:
Welcome to the 17-18 school year. I hope you took time this summer to relax and enjoy the beautiful Pacific Northwest.
I am excited to see students, families and staff as we kick-off another great school year. I also am excited about the new ASD Strategic Plan. Last spring, a group of 60 parents, students, community members, teachers and staff met five times to develop the new plan.
This summer, the School Board adopted the five-year strategic plan that will guide our work to fulfill our new mission statement:
In a culture of equity and excellence, we engage, educate and empower each student for success beyond graduation.
We have set bold goals with the new plan. We will work towards 100 percent graduation, excellent attendance, all students meeting achievement goals each year and excellence for ALL students.
We will be sharing more information about our new plan and the specifics of how we will be working to fulfill our mission in a variety of ways over the coming months. We look forward to your feedback, support and contributions as we work towards our new goals.
On another note, because of the amazing community support in passing the bond in November, you will see construction begin in the spring. We are starting with Olympic Middle School and it will open in the fall of 2019. The Auburn School District website has more information and the tentative time line for all of the projects.
We are excited to serve you and your student this year. I look forward to meeting you in our wonderful community.
Dr. Alan SpicciatiSuperintendent
