Educator Opportunities

Throughout the year, WFIS will provide a deep-dive focus on various issues of particular relevance to private school teachers, administrators, and staff.  WFIS expands community for private schools through partnerships with sponsors and partner orgs, legislators and lobbyists in Olympia, and fellow advocacy organizations. See our events below:

Presentations & Webinars

WFIS invites experts and state agencies to present crucial resources to private schools on topics like emergency preparedness, employment law, cyber risk, health inspections, licensing visits, immunization rules, and Clean Buildings implementation.

WFIS partners and sponsors offer online training, resources, and legal expertise for member schools on employment best practices, contracts, FMLA leave, risk management, and religious school support.

Regional Lunch & Learns

During fall and spring, WFIS will travel to different parts of the state to join regional private school leaders in discussions on advocacy work.  If your school is interested in hosting a morning Coffee Connection or midday Lunch & Learn for private school leaders in your area, please contact us with details. 

Members Zooms, Workgroups, Board Meetings, Statewide Agency Groups

WFIS strengthens our member schools by fostering connections. We host workgroup meetings for schools with a common need or advocacy issue.

WFIS K12 leaders and early learning programs meet weekly to discuss advocacy, updates, and troubleshoot licensing topics. It’s a great opportunity to seek insight from fellow school leaders and strengthen private education.
