Washington Alliance for Better Schools (WABS) is a collaborative of school districts that leverages resources, talent and intellectual capital to help over a quarter million students graduate career and college ready.
Each and every student in our member school districts graduates with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in a global economy.

Who We Are
WABS was formed in 1995 to assist its Puget Sound member school districts in their quest to improve academic achievement. Member districts include Edmonds, Everett, Highline, Kent, Lake Washington, Marysville, Mukilteo, Northshore, Renton, Seattle, Shoreline, and Tacoma. Our Board of Directors consists of member district superintendents, higher education faculty, and industry leaders.
What We Do
WABS helps member districts share resources, expertise and technical assistance as they strive to:
- Increase indicators of academic achievement and career readiness, particularly in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
- Build teachers’ skill and capacity to provide powerful learning opportunities for all students.
- Close the achievement and opportunity gaps associated with historically under-represented populations.
- Strengthen student and family engagement in education.
