Washington’s expanded learning opportunities: The promise of a systems approach

The BUILD Initiative and the Raikes Foundation funded the development of this report to tell the story of how leaders and stakeholders in Washington State came together around a unified vision of accessible, equitable, and high-quality Expanded Learning Opportunities. The report is based on a review of documents, interviews with 19 key informants in the state, and secondary analysis of data collected by the University of Washington (See Appendix A for details about the objectives, scope and methodology.) The purpose of the document is to share the story of promising aspects of the developing ELO system with Washington stakeholders and leaders in other states working to develop their own unified system of quality Expanded Learning Opportunities. The story presents the promising approaches, the lessons learned, and the next steps that stakeholders hope to take to continue to increase access to high-quality Expanded Learning Opportunities throughout the state.
