Excellent Schools Now

A+ Washington: A Way Forward for All Students

BERK worked with key members of the Excellent Schools Now coalition, including the League of Education Voters, Partnership for Learning, Stand for Children, and Teachers United, to craft this ambitious grassroots education reform agenda for the State of Washington. BERK analyzed and synthesized stakeholder feedback from an early draft of A+ Washington and incorporated this input into subsequent drafts.

BERK facilitated several meetings of the Excellent Schools Now Steering Committee to achieve consensus on the contents of A+ Washington, including core strategies and actions, and the timeframe for implementation.
