"All of us play a vital role in creating unparalleled learning experiences for our students and in ensuring they have access to the resources and support to be successful."
- Dr. Zachary Robbins, Superintendent

The Strategic Plan is centered around foundational elements to include our Values, Promise, Commitment, Strategic Priorities, and Strategic Goals coupled with key performance outcomes for the goals.

The plan is a result of our belief that each Marysville and Tulalip student can achieve their full potential in an educational experience that is relevant, challenging, and individualized, which shares such common values as equity, cultural understanding, accountability, and leadership. It is designed based on the overarching values of Communication, Accountability, Resilience, Equity, and Student-centered for each student in all schools.

Our core values drive our actions and beliefs:


Marysville School District CARES that our students are prepared for a rapidly changing world.
