Blaine School District

By Ron Spanjer

It has been an exciting and eventful year for the Blaine school district.
Our students continue to demonstrate a high level of academic achievement, performing at or above statewide averages on the Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL).

In addition, our students excel in music and athletics, consistently receiving recognition for their accomplishments on a local, regional and statewide level.

The Blaine school district has annually been acknowledged for having one of the most comprehensive advanced placement program in the state of Washington, providing students at the secondary level with options to accelerate the acquisition of academic skills in preparation for post secondary school opportunities. We are indeed committed to assuring for the development of life long learners.

While enrollment for the 2006-07 school year has remained relatively steady, the Blaine school district continues to plan for steady enrollment growth at all levels.

During the 2007 calendar year, the board of directors will review alternatives for elementary school site acquisition in the Birch Bay area and also arrive at a recommendation for facility expansion at Blaine high school.

At this time, the board of directors is considering running a capital projects bond, in concert with the maintenance and operations levy in early 2008.

The Blaine school district is privileged to have a highly experienced and dedicated staff across the K-12 program. As the calendar year comes to a close, the new superintendent is being joined by two new board members, all of whom are dedicated to supporting the tradition of excellence.

The communities of Blaine, Birch Bay and Point Roberts remain an integral part of the success of the Blaine school district.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents and patrons for their continued support. We look forward to joining with you to continue the vital work of educating all students in 2007!
