Council to discuss 2025 Strategic Action Plan, approve new Regional Challenge Grant partnerships

May 7, 2024

Olympia—At its May 14 meeting, the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) will discuss and approve the 2025 Strategic Action Plan to increase educational attainment and equity in Washington State. The Strategic Action Plan includes strategies to increase enrollment and affordability, as WSAC works toward the goal of 70 percent of Washington adults attaining a credential beyond high school. 

After reviewing 38 submitted Letters of Interest, WSAC has nominated five new partnerships for a total of $1.55 million in funding from the Regional Challenge Grant (RCG). Council will discuss these recommendations, as well as proposals for continued investment in existing partnerships from the first RCG cohort. 

This meeting will take place at Heritage University on May 14 from 8 a.m. to 3:15 p.m. Formal public comment will begin at 3 p.m. A hybrid option is also available, with online registration required to attend via Zoom.

While in Toppenish, Council members will meet with local leaders to learn from the unique education landscape of the Yakima Valley. On Monday, May 13, WSAC will host a community meeting at Mabton Junior Senior High School to hear impact stories from local students and families who received support from the Yakima Valley Partners for Education partnership. The community will discuss innovative approaches to increasing FAFSA and WASFA completions to improve postsecondary educational attainment. 


  • The public will have opportunities to comment during the meeting. Those who plan to attend should register on Zoom prior.
