WFIS hosted the spring Constituency Leaders meeting this week to garner input on topics affecting private schools supported by the various accreditation organizations in WA state. Topics discussed included:

  • Exempt vs. nonexempt staff, salary thresholds, and the impact on private schools
  • Accreditation clarifications
  • The delay in allowing private schools to offer cultural competency, diversity, equity, and inclusion clock hours
  • The increase in oversight and paperwork by the State, including school health and safety inspections
  • Changes in school culture and how schools are successfully responding

WFIS will host the next Constituency Leaders meeting in the fall.
