The fundamental strength of Central Washington's labor resources is a solid education system. This begins with a K-12 school system that the community has endorsed by passing school bond levies for the construction of new facilities and improved educational opportunities for kids. The K-12 system is strongly supported by active parents who generously give of their time, energy and resources to make North Central Washington an ideal place for raising a family. Private and alternative schools provide additional educational opportunities for area kids.
Post-secondary education continues with a dynamic and progressive community college system that offers transfer, associate and certificated training programs as well as community education opportunities. Customized industry-specific training can provide you with a highly skilled work force. Higher education bachelor degrees are also offered locally through satellite campuses and distance learning programs. Click on the following links to learn more:
