Strategic Action Plan

The Council will consider adoption of the 2014 Strategic Action Plan in November. The draft 2014 Strategic Action Plan outlines the critical, immediate steps to meet Washington's two attainment goals.

  • All adults in Washington, ages 25-44, will have a high school diploma or equivalent.
  • At least 70 percent of Washington adults, ages 25-44, will have a postsecondary credential.

The draft proposals, which align with the Council's 2013 Roadmap report, were developed with input from stakeholders across the sectors.
