We are the Washington State Charter Schools Association

We are an ADVOCACY organization. We know that one size does not fit all learners, so we partner with schools, parents, and communities to promote policies that support all public school students.

We help GROW the number of high-quality public school options in our state by helping visionary leaders design, launch, and lead innovative and gap-closing schools.

We help SUSTAIN a high-quality charter public school sector by providing key technical assistance and resources to operating schools, including policy and advocacy leadership, governance support, professional learning communities, and more.

There are a growing number of high-quality charter public school options in communities across Washington.
