In an effort to give Washington’s postsecondary students cutting edge online educational opportunities, the state formed the Washington Student Achievement Council, a cabinet-level agency, in July 2012. The council’s mission was to develop a ten-year roadmap proposing goals and resources to strengthen postsecondary education in the state. In its December 2015 progress report, the council announced its vision to see 70% of Washington residents between the ages of 25 and 44 achieve a postsecondary degree by the year 2023. Through research, strategic planning, oversight, and advocacy programs, the nine-member Council works tirelessly to enhance online student success.
