Basic Education Compliance

In our state, SBE is responsible for certifying that school district are in compliance with the program requirements of Basic Education (WAC 180-16-195, WAC 180-16-200, and RCW 28A.150.220(7)) each year. This gives the Board an opportunity to work with districts, and to get important data about school district programming. See the graph below as an example of the kind of data collected (from last year). We hope to share more data and visualizations as we work to complete Basic Education Compliance verification.

Basic Education Compliance

The State Board of Education (SBE) is now collecting compliance information annually online from each school district in Washington. The prompts for the 2022-23 collection are provided for respondents to review prior to initiating the collection process.
