Our resources can inform your district’s policy-making. We also convene or participate in meetings, conferences or events.
Superintendent Evaluation Models
Resulting from a 2-year collaboration between WSSDA and WASA, two models were selected and approved by our board for distribution to school districts.
Boards of Distinction
Multiple levels of distinction are recognized among boards of varying district sizes that show evidence of applying the Washington School Board Standards.
VIP Credentialing Program
Annual Conference breakout sessions grouped for new school directors, experienced directors, plus issues of current interest.
Customized In-District Trainings
workshops and retreats are especially helpful when new members join the board or the team is ready to reach a new level of effectiveness.
Board Boot Camp
“Boot camp” is designed to get new directors
ready to fully participate as effective leaders and provide a refresher to experience directors and superintendents.
Offered every other year, this program will improve your expertise and leadership capacity, yielding positive impacts on your professional and personal lives.
