Auburn School District
Auburn School District No. 408 is a public school district in King County, Washington, seated in Auburn.
Auburn School District provides quality educational programs to all students by professionally trained, highly educated staff.
The district and the communities it serves work together to ensure the continuation of these high standards of service.
The district encompasses a 62-mile area bridging King and Pierce counties, and serves approximately 75,000 residents in Auburn, Algona, Pacific, Lake Tapps and unincorporated areas of King County.
Auburn School District is committed to fulfilling its mission of providing our 17,000 students with an education that, in a culture of equity and excellence, we engage, educate and empower each student for success beyond graduation. A community ad-hoc committee developed a new strategic plan for 2017-22 that the ASD Board of Directors adopted in June of 2017 and guides our work.
Community support for the Auburn School District is tremendous. In 2014, the community passed a technology levy to provide modern learning tools to our students. During the 17-18 school year, every student in grades 6-12 received a Chromebook for use at home and at school. In 2016, the community passed a $456,056,000 bond to replace six aging schools and build two new elementary schools. Ground-breaking on the first replacement school was in March, 2018. Their local levies have consistently passed for decades.
They want high achievement for all students. At the elementary level, they follow the No Excuses University model to prepare each student for success. At the secondary level, we provide comprehensive course offerings for advanced placement, honors, career and technical education, and basic skills classes to prepare all students for career and college. They are implementing AVID at our middle schools in 2019-20 for even more rigorous learning for students.See more
