WFIS is a strong supporter of the hard work the Department of Early Learning is doing to ensure our youngest kids are in the best possible scenarios statewide. Private schools – this is an opportunity for your parents to guide DEL about the framework of ideas crucial to early childhood support.
“The DEL Parent Advisory Group (PAG) was established in 2007 as a sounding board to bring parent voices into the work of DEL. It is a place to share ideas, provide advice and guidance, “parent-test” policies and programs, and to shape the future of DEL. Parental involvement is the key to having policies and programs that support families’ strengths and needs.”
DEL is currently recruiting for 5 members from these regions:
- Pierce County
Parent Advisory Group membership criteria:
July 14, 2017; October 4, 2017; April 2018
