the Anacortes School District will strive to the best of its abilities to provide leadership to: 1) inspire high student achievement, 2) nurture responsible citizenship, 3) create lifelong learners, and 4) ensure no child gets lost. The board and superintendent of Anacortes schools have joined with all staff, teachers, parents, and students to provide exceptional learning opportunities and support for our most valuable asset: our children.
