What: This capstone event is the culmination of a three-year project focusing on the goals of decreasing the proportion of high school graduates placing into developmental courses and increasing the proportion of college students satisfactorily completing college-level ELA and mathematics.

Who: Educators from around the state are invited to join the regional educators (K-12 districts, Community Colleges of Spokane, Eastern Washington University and other 4-year colleges and universities) who participated in the project.

Why: To discuss strategies that promote cross-sector inquiry and professional learning in support of students' successful transitions to college.  Participants will have an opportunity to collaborate and discuss innovative ways to improve student transitions across sectors in our region.

How Much?  This event is FREE!
