Take Our Budget Survey!

Each spring the Olympia School District plans and enacts its annual budget. One of our goals is to gather as much community feedback as possible. As part of that effort, we are pleased to offer an online survey to seek your opinion about where the District should concentrate its resources. The information you provide will be used to help the Superintendent and School Board build and implement the District’s 2014-15 school year budget. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete. At the end of the survey you will find an open-ended question where you can offer additional ideas and feedback. We invite you to take the survey at the link below. Thank you for helping us set spending priorities for your local school district!


Important! Smarter Balanced Field Testing Coming Soon

This spring schools in twenty-two states will participate in a field test of the Smarter Balanced Assessment. Jefferson is one of the schools participating in the trail run of this test before it is required and scored in all schools statewide in the spring of 2015. Our school’s field testing will take place between the dates of April 28 and June 6. There are several advantages to participating in this trial run of the test; one of the biggest is having one year of testing under our belt the tests are required and scored next year. To learn more about the Smarter Balanced Assessment field test and what it will mean for our school and our students, click on the link to read a letter from JMS Principal Michael Cimino, Centennial Elementary Principal Alice Drummer (Centennial is also participating in the field test) and Superintendent Dick Cvitanich.
