Theory of Action

In Washington, opportunity and results gaps disproportionately impact students of color, students from low-income backgrounds, students with disabilities, English language learners, and other systemically underserved students and communities. Although we know the roots of these gaps extend beyond the walls of schools, we believe that great public schools are fundamental to changing the lives of young people and empowering communities.

WA Charters believes
All students deserve high-quality public school options that meet their needs and prepare them to achieve success in college, career, and life.

Therefore
To transform the life outcomes of students with the greatest needs, WA Charters must address opportunity and achievement gaps by advocating for and supporting a robust sector of high-quality charter public schools through strategic communications, a legal and political ground game, parent organizing, school incubation, and member services.

Which will show
What is possible for students when schools use resources creatively and are built to be responsive to students’ needs in a legal and political environment where all public schools can thrive.

Which will impact
The broader public education system for Washington students and communities. Through example and partnership, charter public schools will improve student outcomes across Washington.
