Strategic Plan 2011-2012 (PDF)
The Mission of the Auburn-Washburn School District is to deliver an exemplary, world-class education for all students, instilling in them the knowledge, skills, and character required to be responsible and productive citizens.
The Auburn-Washburn School District will provide all children a safe, enjoyable, and challenging school environment where they have the opportunity to achieve their maximum individual education potential. All students will receive a balanced education where traditional scholastics are taught, creativity and innovation are cultivated, and life skills are learned; preparing them to assume roles as responsible citizens in a global community.
We believe learning is a lifelong process. The following values will help realize our Vision:

We believe in the value and uniqueness of each STUDENT.
  • Each Student -
    • has different needs
    • should have the opportunity and be encouraged to reach his/her potential
    • is entitled to a safe and secure school environment
We believe that EXCELLENCE in education is a multifaceted process.
  • Excellence -
    • requires the commitment and judicious stewardship of community resources
    • prepares students to become productive members of a global society; to live and work in a complex, ever changing world
    • should be grounded in fundamental skills
    • is a dynamic process in order to meet changing needs
    • requires rigorous assessment and feedback to both students and faculty
    • requires focus on the future
    • depends upon effectively managed financial and physical resources
    • academic excellence and good citizenship should be recognized and rewarded
We believe that RESPECT and RESPONSIBILITY are essential components of an excellent education.
  • Students, parents, faculty and staff all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect
  • Communication enhances trust and cooperation
  • Each student is responsible for his/her own actions
  • Responsibility for public education rests jointly with students, parents, teachers and community
