Washington State Public Education: A Guide for Students and Families

Welcome! This guide offers a basic overview of the public school system in Washington and helps families initiate important conversations with teachers and other school staff.

This guide is intended to help families understand how schools and teachers work, so we can make the most of our partnership with them. It also provides information about what to do when we're having problems with a teacher or school, and information about special programs our children may need.
