Enrollment Just Got Easier

For the 2014-2015 school year, Auburn-Washburn is moving to centralized enrollment. All enrollment sessions for returning students (grades K-12) will be held at Washburn Rural High School July 29-31.

Elementary Students

Returning elementary families may not need to attend an enrollment session if they register online. Just follow the online registration instructions.

Middle and High School Students

Returning students entering grades 7-12 should register online prior to enrollment, then attend one of the sessions.

Enrollment Sessions

Returning students in all grades can come to Washburn Rural High School (5900 SW 61st Street) during the enrollment sessions to complete the registration process, pay fees, etc.

To help evenly spread the flow, families are encouraged to attend the enrollment session date corresponding to the first letter of their last name; however, families may come to another session if the assigned day is inconvenient.

Auburn-Washburn has openings in preschool programs

Preschool Programs Available

If you are new to our district and have a student ages three to four years old, you may be interested in one of our preschool classrooms. For more information, please call Jill Gratton at 339-4038 or pick up an application at the Shuler Education Center at 53rd and Wanamaker.

We offer several types of early childhood education in our preschool settings, allowing us to serve as many children as possible and to meet the needs of individual learners. Classrooms may contain a mix of students who are enrolled in different programs or “slots”. Not all programs are available at all attendance centers. Children attend three, four, or five days a week depending on their program. Most of the programs we offer have specific criteria that determine eligibility. These programs include:

At-risk four-year-old preschool

Students must be four years old by August 31 of each new school year. Families must meet at least one of ten eligibility criteria such as low income, single parent, parent lacks a high school diploma, etc.

Students with a disability

Students must be determined eligible for special education services through a comprehensive evaluation. Students may be ages three to five years. Students in this program may receive services in our classrooms, in community preschools, at home or in other community settings.

Kindergarten prep

Students who have attended one year of preschool and are not quite ready for Kindergarten. Teachers refer students for this program. This program is only available at Pauline Central Primary School.

Title One

Students who live in the neighborhood of a school designated as a Title One school (a certain percentage of families in that school meet socio-economic eligibility criteria). Currently, this program is only available at Pauline Central Primary School.

Three-year-old peer models

Students who are three-years-old and have passed an eligibility screening. There is a fee associated with this program. No transportation is provided for students in this program.
