Texas School Tragedy
Dear SCSD Families and Staff:

 

On behalf of the Stanwood-Camano School District, our thoughts today are with the community of Uvalde, Texas, and to the staff, students, and families of Robb Elementary School. It’s difficult to comprehend the motivation for this horrific attack.


We have worked as a district team to develop our building emergency preparedness plans. Our plans have been developed in coordination with our local first responders. We have practiced and trained to respond with confidence and are grateful for the service of our School Resource Officer.


For a complete list of our safety measures, please visit our Safety and Wellness page on our website. 


Adults can help children feel safe by establishing a sense of normalcy and security and talking with them about their fears. The National Association of School Psychologists has excellent resources for talking to your children about violence HERE.

We recognize this event may be incredibly traumatizing for school-based staff. If you need support at this time, please reach out to a colleague or take advantage of our Employee Assistance Program; it is important that each of us pay attention to our wellness. We also must pull together as a school community to support one another.  


The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. It takes parents, students, staff, and the community to keep schools safe places to learn. Thank you for your continuing support of our schools.

 

Respectfully,

Stanwood-Camano School District Board of Directors

Dr. Deborah Rumbaugh, Superintendent


Office of the State Auditor

The District has received a Stewardship Award from the Office of the Washington State Auditor (SAO) in recognition of its outstanding performance on state audits and commitment to safeguarding public resources.
The State Auditor’s Stewardship Award (SASA) is an award given to a governmental entity that has demonstrated exemplary fiscal responsibility, clean audits, and strong stewardship of public funds.

Each year, audit teams (typically divided by location around the state) have the opportunity to nominate one or two of the entities that they work with for consideration for this award.

Washington State Auditor Pat McCarthy presented the award at the School Board regular meeting on Tuesday, May 3.

“We are incredibly honored to receive this award,” said Superintendent Deborah Rumbaugh. “This prestigious award recognizes our commitment to solid and ethical budgetary practices.”

The SAO audits the district annually and has consistently found the district to be fully in compliance with applicable requirements with no findings. In giving this award, it cited the district’s transparency, especially concerning communication during the audit process.

The mission of the SAO is to provide citizens with independent and transparent examinations of how state and local governments use public funds and develop strategies to make government more efficient and effective. Its audits look at financial information and compliance with state, federal, and local laws.
