The Auburn-Washburn School District provides public education to approximately 5,300 Kindergarten through 12th graders in Topeka, KS. It consists of 128 square miles of rural and suburban areas. Descriptive terms like academically challenging, progressive, small classes, high-achievement, modern and excellent are all used to describe the district.
The Auburn-Washburn School District consists of nine schools and a total of 903 teachers and administrators who use email through the district?s main server. These 903 education professionals average 12,000-14,000
emails per day. The large number of individual users coupled with the enormous volume created an interesting challenge for Don Williams, Director of Information Technology at the Auburn District, when a federal mandate
required him to implement an email archive solution for the entire district.
