The Fellows' Mission and Vision

Mission: 
The Fellows are a growing network of Washington State educational leaders who expand their capacity to improve student learning through ongoing professional learning and leadership development within their local context and in partnership with school districts, educational service districts, community agencies and state organizations.
 
Vision: 
Measurable growth for every student in every learning environment in Washington

As a Fellow, you will experience a sense of:
  • Community as part of a regionally based statewide network of educators.
  • Ownership by investing in your own professional learning.
  • Responsibility in sharing the knowledge and skills you gain with your colleagues. 
Three-year Fellows' Program
This three-year professional learning and leadership development program allows for deeper and expanded learning in the topics of: leadership, content area knowledge, adult learning, change management, equity, use of data and analytics, and student development. Fellows who have participated for more than three years may become Emeritus Fellows. Emeritus Fellows remain connected to the Fellows’ Network, with opportunities for leadership through local, regional, and/or state initiatives. Fellows who have completed three years in the program and want to become Emeritus Fellows should complete the Emeritus Fellows Interest Survey instead of this application.

New Fellows will participate in a New Fellows’ Orientation meeting prior to the four convenings during the school year.
