Increasing educational attainment is essential to the well-being of our state's residents and economy. In collaboration with interested citizens and stakeholders, the Washington Student Achievement Council proposes ways to raise the state's educational achievement level. The Council's work is reflected in a ten-year education Roadmap and a two-year Strategic Action Plan.
The Council completed its first Strategic Action Plan in December 2012. Titled "Critical Crossroads: A Call for Action," the plan identifies five educational issues that represent both obstacles and opportunities for improving educational attainment.
The Roadmap will suggest long-term degree production goals and strategies for achieving those goals. It will examine in greater detail the five issues identified in the Strategic Action Plan: student readiness, affordability, institutional capacity and student success, technological opportunities, and stable and accountable funding. The first Roadmap will be delivered to the Governor and Legislature by December 1, 2013.
