  Secondary Education

Secondary Education and K-12 Supports provides leadership, technical assistance, and resources to Washington state schools, administrators, and counselors who equip students for academic success and career preparation. We are working to create a transition between K-12 education and postsecondary education which will be as seamless as possible. We want students to have a meaningful experience at all education levels as well as future success in work and life in an increasing global society.
