Washington Alliance for Better Schools (WABS) is a collaborative of eleven school districts that leverages resources, talent and intellectual capital to help over a quarter million students graduate career and college ready. WABS is a nimble and dynamic organization led by the WABS member district Superintendents, who serve as the Board of Directors, along with the University of Washington. Our Goals are to:
1) Increase indicators of academic achievement and career readiness, particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
2) Build teachers’ skill and capacity to provide powerful learning opportunities for all students.
3) Close the achievement and opportunity gaps associated with historically underrepresented populations.
4) Strengthen student and family engagement in education. – less
