  • 2024 Human and Civil Rights Teaching Equity Conference

    Join your colleagues on Thursday, July 25th to learn more about cultivating effective educational environment and classroom cultures based on Washington's equity-based school practices aligned to cultural competency, diversity, equity and inclusion (CCDEI) standards.

    Participants will get to learn, practice and create narratives based on the power of "asset-based story telling." Asset-based narratives create school cultures that center student-to-educator relationships and student-to-student relationships. Effective and authentic relational and educational environments directly impact social, emotional growth and academic achievement.

    The conference will be held at Highline College, 2400 S. 240th St., in Des Moines, from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Six CCDEI clock hours will be available for free. The conference is free, but parking is $2 for the entire day. Click "Read More" below to register.

  • Save the Date! Education Funding Crisis Town Hall 10/9/24

    Please "Save the Date" and plan to attend our Education Funding Crisis Town Hall on Wednesday, October 9th, from 6:00pm-7:30pm at Edmonds Woodway High School. This event will be the kick off to member conversations with our legislators about the devastating impacts of the lack of funding on our districts, schools, and students. Legislators from the 1st, 21st, 32nd, 44th and 45th legislative districts have been invited to attend. Our strength is in our unity and collective voice! Our legislators need to see a large turnout so they understand that educators, district leaders, parents, and students are unwilling to allow our schools and programs to be gutted by the continued underfunding of education by our legislature.
