Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Continuous Student Learning in a Caring, Engaging Environment

Welcome

Tumwater School District provides a safe, caring, and supportive learning environment for students.  Our academic focus is based on four questions:  What do we want each student to learn?  How will we know if each student is learning it?  How will we respond when a student is experiencing difficulty?  How will we respond if the student already knows it?
