  • Green Dot Rainier Valley Leadership Academy
  • PRIDE Prep
  • Rainier Prep
  • SOAR Academy
  • Spokane International Academy
  • Summit Public Schools: Atlas

Services provided by the True Measure Collaborative include:

  • Support in the design of data-informed student identification and intervention, including the design of rigorous child find activities and the selection of research-based support strategies that offer students effective services at the most opportune points of intervention
  • Induction and ongoing Professional Learning Community for schools’ special education leaders
  • Identification and engagement of community providers interested in collaborating with charter schools in their efforts to meet the comprehensive needs of all students
