The Stand for Children Washington Political Action Committee (PAC) is excited to make school board election endorsements of education champions who will be strong, independent voices for putting the best interests of students first. For schools to be safe and affirming spaces, we need school board members who will work to create thriving environments for all students.

our endoresement process
Through our endorsement process, including questionnaires and interviews with a committee of staff and community volunteers, we identify candidates who share our values and our vision of building systems that are student-centered. In a time when powerful interests seek to divide and distract us from focusing on providing students with a high quality, relevant education, we remain non-partisan and student focused.
To receive an endorsement from our PAC, candidates must demonstrate alignment with our priorities, including:
- Increasing the number of students furthest from educational justice who receive a relevant and meaningful high school diploma;
- Creating safe and equitable learning environments that cultivate belonging and affirm students’ intersecting identities;
- Ensuring robust implementation of state laws at the local level, including academic acceleration policies.
If elected, we believe these candidates will center the needs of young people and work to address the existing harmful inequities in our education through their seats on local school boards.
