Our district is committed to continuous improvement. As part of our school improvement process, every school in our district develops and implements a School Improvement Plan that is tailored to its specific needs each year. To help each of our schools understand its strengths and challenges in areas known to impact educational effectiveness, we would appreciate your input on how our schools are doing. Please take a few minutes to complete this very important survey developed by the Center for Educational Effectiveness. You should fill out one survey for each school that you have a student attending. We value your input as we strive to continue to improve our schools. Thank you in advance for your time and your feedback! CLICK HERE to access the survey.
The District will host a School Safety Forum on March 27th at Tumwater High School. Refreshments will be served from 6-6:30, and the program will begin at 6:30 in the main gym. The focus of the forum will be to share how the district, schools and local law enforcement prepare for an active shooter situation. There will be a presentation and panel discussion. Panelists include law enforcement and district administrators. This is open to TSD staff, parents and community members. There will be time for questions following the panel presentation. Attendees will be able to submit their questions via question cards. If we are unable to answer your question during the forum, we will contact you after the event to answer your question(s).
