Washington Teacher Careers, Certification & Salaries
The State of Washington has 295 school districts scattered across the landscape, from Seattle, the birthplace of the digital industry, to the farm communities and blue collar neighborhoods found in the high plains country of Eastern Washington. It's a big state that has supported its public education system aggressively until recent years, when budget realities have forced the state to scale back. But the Washington Department of Education continues to support teacher development and standardized programs like special education with special funding mechanisms. Appropriate to the state's history, the Washington DOE is currently offering grants to teachers who want to enroll in a two year course in educational technology.
