About the district
Edmonds outpaced state averages for higher education achievement, median income, and poverty rate. The percentage of city residents over 25 years old with undergraduate degrees (43.6%) is above the state average (31.4%). The 2010 U.S. Census calculated Edmonds's median income at $72,452 while the state median income was $58,890. Edmonds had a poverty rate of 7.8% 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 is Nick J. Brossoit, Ed.D. He previously served as the Superintendent of Tumwater School District from 1994 to 2004. In 2011-2012, Brossoit earned $229,462 in total compensation including $199,546 in salary, $20,700 in bonuses and stipends and $9,216 in benefits).
The Edmonds School Board is a five-member board with each member elected by district to a four-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.
Edmonds School District met the state goal of 95% participation across all grade levels. The district did not meet AYP goals for reading at the middle school and high school levels.
