General Information

As the largest Washington state charter convening of the year, the WA Charters annual conference brings together everyone currently engaged in the state’s growing sector in Washington and those seeking to learn more about innovative and excellent schools across our state. This year’s conference title is Onward: Excellence and Equity, grounding our conference offerings in the connected themes of excellent education for all students and diversity, equity, and inclusion.

This event brings together national, regional, and local experts in charter public schools and provides opportunities for networking, learning, and engagement between charter school leaders, teachers, board, members, advocates, and community stakeholders. In previous years, more than 300 have gathered to learn, connect and share.

This year we are welcoming Shavar Jeffries, National President of Democrats for Education Reform, and Rob McKenna, former Washington State Attorney General and partner at international law firm Orrick, as our keynote speakers. Join us for two days of learning, connecting, celebrating, and growing together.

Note: Free childcare will be provided for children ages 4-12 on Saturday, April 28.
