Superintendent's Message

Partnering with you and Keeping our Focus on Student Learning & Achievement 

During the 2018-19 school year, we will continue to embrace our commitment to increase student learning and achievement where each Arlington student is educated, prepared and inspired to graduate and seek their full potential as a lifelong learner. TOGETHER with you and our staff, we will cultivate high levels of growth in learning for EACH student.

This summer, the school board approved bringing a bond toChrys Sweeting voters
on Nov. 6. The bond projects will:
• Provide better instructional learning spaces
• Improve safety and security at every school
• Improve efficiencies across the district
• Prepare us for present and future growth

This Our Schools publication provides information regarding the
bond’s purpose and projects. If you have questions or would like
more information about the bond, please visit the district website at or contact us at 360-618-6200.

Three Safety Forums were scheduled during October. During these
forums, attendees heard more about what we are doing about
safety and security in our schools, had an opportunity to provide
feedback, and learned more about the safety and security projects in the bond.

Making progress toward our Strategic Plan and keeping our focus on student learning is enhanced by partnering with you! We are always better
together and our students and community continue to benefit from the amazing support you provide in a variety of ways.

Thank you for partnering with us to support Arlington students!
