Superintendent of Schools

Griffin School District

Closing date: Mar 3, 2024

Griffin School District is located in Thurston County, Washington, a few minutes northwest of Olympia in one of the most beautiful settings in the southern Puget Sound region. The small supportive community includes many long-time residents who are dedicated to preserving the pristine natural environment, which offers beach combing, fishing, boating, hiking, golfing, biking and other outdoor activities across the Steamboat Island area. Local businesses and several community events add to the charm of this community where schools are a source of local pride. The district has earned a stellar reputation for providing high-quality education services to students in partnership with families and the community. An active Parent/Teacher Organization and the Griffin School Foundation provide generous support for enrichment activities, family/community events, scholarships, staff training, facility enhancements and support for special student learning needs. Griffin School District serves approximately 580 students in Kindergarten through 8th Grade in a combined Elementary/Middle School facility. The area is also served by the Olympia School District where most Griffin students go to attend Capital High School. In February 2022 voters passed a replacement levy supporting ongoing capital projects, technology and facility safety needs. In February 2024 voters also approved a four-year Educational Programs and Operations Levy. This supplemental funding support from the local community further enhances the quality of education provided at Griffin through expanded learning opportunities, as well as funding for school safety initiatives and facility development.
