ASD Reopening Planning
Our schools prepare all of Auburn’s children for education, work, and community engagement after graduation. Relationships with supportive staff, effective instruction, and meaningful learning activities support our children in building and reaching their dreams. These activities happen best in school and we are eager to have staff and students back in our schools.
The pandemic also requires us to attend to the health and safety of staff, students, and families in new ways. While these have always been priorities, the COVID-19 pandemic brings new practices we must observe in our schools based on guidance from local health departments.
With all of this in mind – staff, family, student, and community representatives are working together to plan for school in fall 2020. School will be in session for all students! Our use of school buildings will be based on health regulations. While we all joined together this spring to ‘do school’ in these uncharted times, summer break allows us to leverage the time and perspective we have now to plan for the best fall possible. Our teams are focused on serving all students, paying careful attention to needs indicated in our data and your feedback.
Auburn School District is planning using structures outlined in: Reopening Planning Process
Key guides for ASD planning are OSPI's Reopening Washington School 2020 District Planning Guide and local Public Health Department guidance.

The Reopening Exective Committee and five Work Groups are formed to provide recommendations to district leadership on reopening plans for fall 2020. Committees include ASD administrators, teachers, support staff, parents, students, and community members:
ASD invited families, students, and staff to provide input on their spring experience and hopes for fall. As of Sunday, June 15, a high number of stakeholders completed the survey to assist the planning groups. Thank you!
