About the district
Everett lags behind state averages for median income, higher education achievement and poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (20.3%) is below the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Everett's median income at $48,410 while the state median income was $58,890. Everett had a poverty rate of 16.4% in the 2010 U.S. Census while the state rate was 12.5%.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
The current Superintendent of Everett Public Schools is Dr. Gary Cohn. He has served in the position since his appointment in July 2009. Cohn previously served for eight years as the Superintendent of the Port Angeles School District.
The Everett Public Schools Board of Directors is a five-member board with each member elected at-large to a six-year term. Each member can be compensated $50 per day for district matters with a maximum compensation of $4,800 per year.

The Washington Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction published a state report card for 2011-2012 assessing subject proficiency levels and year-to-year progress for each district. This report card relies on data from the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) and High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE) to determine if each district meets Annual Yearly Progress (AYP) goals in reading and math. The goal for each district is to meet proficiency goals at all grade levels and student demographics by the 2013-2014 school year.
Everett Public Schools met the state goal of 95% participation across all grade levels. The district did not meet AYP goals for reading at the elementary and middle school levels.
