TAF ACADEMY BREAKS GROUND

A groundbreaking ceremony for the new Technology Access Foundation (TAF) Academy was held June 12 at Totem Middle School. Above, Federal Way School Board members, students and TAF dignitaries perform the ceremony. Pictured at left: School board member Tony Moore talks with TAF founder Trish Dziko at the ceremony. The TAF Academy will open in portable buildings Sept. 2. TAF and the Federal Way School District will work together to run the sixth- through 12th-grade academy as part of a joint operating agreement. The academy will teach all subjects, with an emphasis on math, science, technology and engineering. Dziko likened the academy as another piece of the school district’s toolkit. “You need to have ways to reach all kids so they’re all successful,” said Dziko, citing her drive to create an academic model that bucks any one-size-fits-all approach. “Success is the only option.” Visit http://schools.fwps.org/taf/index.html. - Photos by Andy Hobbs/ The Mirror
