Small Schools Advisory Committee

Representatives from districts with fewer than 2,000 students help identify issues important to small districts and determine how WSSDA can assist with those issues. Liaisons from other organizations also participate. The Small Schools Issues Advisory Committee meets several times per year as necessary, usually in conjunction with WSSDA Annual Conference, WASA Small Schools Conference, and WSSDA Legislative Assembly.
