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!

Learn More about the Common Core State Standards
Changes to the K-12 curriculum are underway as schools across Washington begin implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Learn more about the CCSS at our Common Core web site.
Ingersoll Stadium Usage Procedures
Last fall the school board approved Procedure 4260P(D), making changes to Ingersoll Stadium security. Part of that change involved additional locking of Ingersoll and the issuing of electronic key cards to community members so they access the stadium for personal recreational use. Key cards are available to community members and students.
On February 21, 2014 key cards became required for access to the stadium. For the safety and security of students and staff, the stadium will be closed to public access, even with a key card, when an Olympia School District (OSD) school is conducting classes, activities or athletic practices. For more information on Ingersoll security, including instructions for obtaining a key card, visit our Ingersoll web page.
