Education Reform - Supt of Public Instruction

Education Reform includes a variety of programs to assist districts in reforming the way they educate children. The following examples describe a few of the many types of programs included in this section. Educational Technology increases the relevancy and quality of student learning through the application of computer technology and telecommunications. This is fostered by the Educational Technology Unit in the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction, which administers and manages the state educational technological initiatives. The statewide testing program focuses on the Essential Academic Learning Requirements, which are Washington's content standards, and provides broad achievement indicators for the state, districts, schools, and individual students. This information helps districts and schools refine instructional practices and focus curriculum. Tests administered statewide include assessments for reading, writing, math, and science and an alternative assessment for special education students. Other programs that focus on staff, professional development, and school improvement efforts are also included in Education Reform.
