Superintendent Reykdal Submits Federal Education Plan

Honoring the submission at Curie STEM Elementary School in Pasco, Reykdal said he was excited about the submission. “Our plan focuses on students who have historically been underserved, such as students of color, students with special needs, low-income students, and our English Language learners,” he said. “It emphasizes a deeper look at performance gaps between groups of students. And our plan puts local educators and parents in the driver’s seat.”

Gov. Jay Inslee thanked Reykdal and his staff for their commitment to an open and transparent process during the development of the draft plan and their responsiveness to public comments that followed. “Hundreds of people participated in workgroups, webinars and informational events,” he said. “Students and families, educators and community leaders, legislators and thought leaders all had a hand in this. I look forward to the continuing collaboration among policymakers and stakeholders, and continuous improvement among schools and districts, as this plan is implemented.”

Accountability

“We want schools to look at the whole child,” he said. “That includes providing supports that help our students succeed both inside and outside the classroom.”

Other components of the plan

Many contributors to the plan

“We have been as transparent as possible in this process and diligent about gathering feedback from our communities,” Reykdal said. “The plan represents a shared vision of education in our state.”
