Welcome to the Sedro-Woolley School District
We are proud of our continued success in providing quality educational opportunities. Our strategic plan, or road map, guides us in reaching our five foundational goals of achievement, equity, stewardship, partnerships and continuous learning. Our district continues to prioritize student achievement by “providing high-quality instruction in every classroom, every day.” Sedro-Woolley continues to be an educational leader in our region as evidenced by Clear Lake and Samish elementary schools being honored as Schools of Distinction last school year.
Our local community continues to support art and music instruction in our elementary schools as well as STEM and the Highly Capable Program at our middle and high schools. In addition, we have expanded the pre-engineering and computer coding classes at Cascade. Sedro-Woolley High School has successfully transitioned to an eight-period alternating day schedule and has added more college-prep in the high school courses, as well as pre-engineering and broadcasting courses.
Our road map also speaks to partnerships, and I would like to recognize and thank our local civic organizations for their many years of school and community support, especially for their generous college scholarships. The City of Sedro-Woolley continues to be instrumental in their support of the Skagit STEM Network that is supporting our students with job shadows, field trips to local business and industry, speaking engagements in our classrooms, and possible student internships.
Our community approved a safety levy that allowed our schools to fully integrate safety measures that keep our students as safe as possible. A technology levy allowed updates to be made throughout the district, and we have computer access like never before. We have completed our school security upgrades and technology in the classrooms and this levy’s last collection will take place in November 2018.
Voters passed a four-year replacement levy in February 2018 that will allow us to continue with the same level of educational success. These measures will allow our school district to continue to thrive in the 21st Century. New legislation will allow us to roll back the local EPO collection to $1.50 per $1,000 assessed property value in 2019. This cost savings led our school board to place a bond measure on the November 6 ballot to build a new Evergreen Elementary and to provide funding for building preservation projects.
We will continue our focus on the expansion of programs and services for our students and the success of our students in extra-curricular activities and athletics.
Our mission states that “every student graduates with the knowledge and skills for future learning and success.” With your continued support and partnership, our students will continue to accomplish amazing things and achieve at high levels!Sincerely,
