Edmonds School District Strategic Direction
Each Student Learning, Every Day! 

Our Strategic Direction (Our ‘True North’) 
  • Effective Learning for All Students
    Each student is engaged in meaningful and relevant learning, every day. We provide comprehensive educational programs and a wide variety of activities that build a solid foundation of knowledge and skills, encourage mindful higher-level thinking, and inspire all students to pursue their interests.

  • Equity of Opportunity
    Each student experiences a diverse, inclusive culture where all people are valued. Adults work to meet students’ individual needs and remove institutional and social barriers to their personal success.

  • P – 3rd Grade Early Learning
    Each student has a supportive, equitable educational foundation and is on track to be performing at grade level by third grade. We work closely with families and community partners to connect and align our schools with local resources to maximize early learning.

  • Graduates Who Are Ready for Life
    Each student is equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to be resilient, participating citizens who are prepared to pursue and accomplish educational, life, and work-related interests after high school.
Our Work (Areas of focus to move us forward) 
  • We educate our students for the world they will live in – staying up-to-date with developments in global realities, workforce expectations, and appropriate technologies. 
  • We respect and empower families as our most important partner in each student’s education.
  • We create and maintain vibrant, collaborative partnerships throughout our larger community to support all students’ academic, mental, emotional, social, and physical well-being. 
  • We utilize what we know (data) about our school district, community, students, and effective teaching practices in order to improve our work with all students.
  • We hire quality people who care deeply about students and learning, and mirror the diversity of our students, families, and community.
  • We engage staff in meaningful, relevant, and collaborative professional development to better inspire, empower, and engage our students.
  • We treat all people with dignity and respect, and we are responsive in our service.
  • We manage and develop our financial and human resources, facilities, and capital projects in ways that support student learning and community values.
