URGENT: Tues., May 26 Now A Half Day of School

The Olympia Education Association (OEA) has just informed the district that it will hold a half-day walkout in response to the Legislature’s failure to adhere to the State’s Constitutional mandate to fully fund public education. The OEA has made it clear that this is not an action against the Olympia School District.

The half-day walkout will take place the afternoon of Tuesday, May 26. Click the link below for details families will need to know for that day.

About Us

L.P. Brown, named after Leland P. Brown, former Olympia teacher, principal and twenty-six year Superintendent of Olympia Schools, is located in the northwest corner of Olympia. It serves approximately 300 students in kindergarten through fifth grade. In addition, special needs children are served in the building’s autism program, and the Infant Toddler Programs.

The school was originally built in 1965. In 1968, additions were made to the school, which included the library and a six-classroom wing expansion. In 1978, the multipurpose building was expanded, increasing the size of the gymnasium. In 1986, a covered playshed structure was constructed. Separate areas for the bus and parent drop-off, a set of new student lavatories and fire sprinklers for the main building were completed in September 1997. The addition of six classrooms in a new wing and a remodeled music room was finished in January 1998, giving L.P. Brown a total of 18 classrooms.

During the school year, L.P. Brown provides space for the YMCA’s before and after-school childcare, and evenings find the building used for sports activities by the YMCA and Olympia Parks and Recreation, as well as school and community meetings.

Budget - Seeking Your Input!

The Olympia School District is beginning to develop its 2015-16 school year budget.  If you would like to offer input into how the district will prioritize spending for the following year, we invite you attend one of our public budget forums:

  • Tuesday, May 19 – 6:30 – 8:30 p.m., Reeves Middle School, 2200 Quince St. NE, Library
  • Wednesday, May 20 – Noon to 2 p.m., Knox Administrative Center, 1113 Legion Way SE, Room 301

Take our budget survey!

Typically we would have a draft budget for review at these spring forums. Unfortunately, this year we have been unable to build a budget because the Legislature has not yet acted and we do not have the major details we would need to build a proposed budget. As a result, we are using these forums as a way to get citizens' thoughts about how the district should prioritize spending once we do get specifics from the Legislature.  The forums will begin with an overview of the budget process, what we know at this point, some "givens" that will likely need to be funded and other options on the table. We will spend the remaining time asking forum attendees for their ideas about how they think the district should prioritize resources. We hope to see you there! If you cannot make the budget forums, we invite you to complete our budget survey, which will remain open until the district has enough information from the state to draft a budget.
