The vision of the Fellows’ Network is that the impact of the fellows will result in measurable growth for every student, in every learning environment, in Washington by working together to develop a sense of community, ownership, and responsibility.
The Washington State Fellows’ Network, a three-year program, is a group of instructional leaders convened by the Washington Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and the Association of Educational Service Districts (AESD) to support district and community implementation of state learning standards in mathematics, English Language Arts, science, and the Early Learning Guidelines.
Regional ESD coordinators, in collaboration with OSPI content-area leadership, convene the Fellows four times per year to engage in shared learning. Common to all four areas is a commitment to build content learning and instructional leadership, with a focus on equity.
While Fellows do not need to commit to every year of this 3-year program, those who do will experience deeper and expanded learning in the topics of leadership, adult learning, change management, content area knowledge, equity, use of data and analytics, and student growth.
