auburn school district, auburn wa, asdBeginning in the fall of 2022, the Auburn School District will provide all required school supplies to all students. Harnessing the power of buying in bulk, the ASD is providing pencils, notebooks, pens, earbuds, erasers crayons and much more. Grade-specific school supplies will be distributed during the first week of school and will be replenished throughout the school year. Schools will have supplies for new students who enroll during the school year.

The district made this change as part of its strategy to put equity into action. For some families, purchasing school supplies put a strain on the family budget. This shift provides each student with the correct school supplies for learning and removes the burden for families to buy them.

“We are excited to make sure students have the necessary supplies to be successful in school. We believe this is a great step to better support our students and families,” said Cindi Blansfield, associate superintendent for business and operations.

If students want to bring supplies, they will be allowed, but every basic school supply will be provided. The district will spend about $600,000 purchasing supplies for all students for the 22-23 school year.
