ESD Board of Directors & Superintendent Mike Nelson honored at WSSDA



ESD Board of Directors earns 2018 Board of Distinction award!

Enumclaw School District’s Board of Directors was recognized for their commitment to equity and high standards. The elite honor was given by Washington State School Directors’ Association (WSSDA). Enumclaw’s five elected members and two student representatives were chosen as a 2018 Board of Distinction, signifying their “commitment to effective governance.” Twenty-nine school boards from the 295 districts that operate in Washington State were selected for this award.

Our Board of Directors along with the Superintendent committed their work to establishing an effective Strategic Plan that focuses on the Whole Child, Tiered System, System Capacity and Instructional Improvement. Clear goal areas help our 550 staff members unite their work in order to provide greater opportunities for our 4,000 students. One proud moment for the District was to graduate 100% of our Native American students in spring of 2018, which stems from providing powerful individual connections through our Cultural Student Program.

Congratulations to our School Board Directors and Student Representatives! We appreciate your diligent work and commitment to excellence.
