Community-Based Organization Partnerships

  • In our vision for excellence, we highlight our belief that each and every scholar has limitless potential. We are committed to ensuring that all scholars, of every race, class, linguistic background, disability, gender identity/expression, sexual orientation, and other exceptionalities, thrive and achieve at high levels. With this vision at the forefront, we have built partnerships with community-based organizations to ensure each scholar has access to equity-driven supports.

    Federal Way Public Schools values strong community partnerships. We cannot do this work alone. We will embrace parents, caregivers, and the entire Federal Way community as vital partners in the education of all our scholars.



    We recommend starting the community partnership process at least three months before the start of anticipated programming. All partnership agreements must be finalized before the start of programming.
