Getting Plugged into the WA Charters Network: A Recap from Educators’ Night

Last Wednesday, a robust crowd of more than 75 gathered for a fun and engaging evening at WA Charters’ Educators’ Night.

We were so glad to see such an enthusiastic and supportive group of attendees and school representatives. Teachers and other professionals curious about plugging into the charter public school sector had the opportunity to connect with current charter leaders and teachers and learn more about the great work happening inside of our state’s charter public schools.  Our leaders and hiring teams thoroughly enjoyed learning about candidates’ diverse backgrounds and interests, while sharing about their school models, missions and values.

  

The energy was high and positive, and we know that many great conversations were had between current schools and potential future teachers, staff, board members and advocates.

Whether or not you were able to join us at Educators’ Night, here are three great ways you can get more involved with our work in the near future:

  1. Attend our annual conference on May 12th-13th to meet more teachers and leaders from our schools and engage in interactive breakout sessions.
  2. Explore employment opportunities with our charter schools via our job board, and learn more about each of our schools on our website.
  3. Join our email list and follow WA Charters on Facebook and Twitter to keep up with the latest news on our work and our schools.

We look forward to many more opportunities for collaboration and we hope to see even more educators and professionals at future events and in the halls and classrooms of Washington’s charter schools.

For thousands of children in Washington State, a high-quality education is out of reach. Washington is home to startling - and increasing - educational inequities for children from low-income communities, children with special needs, and children of color.

We can change this by providing our children with high-quality charter public school options that show what's possible when innovation meets accountability.

Challenge inequity and support innovation by giving to WA Charters this #GivingTuesday. wacharters.org/give/
