What is ATP?

  • Each school’s Action Team for Partnerships (ATP) is made up of parents, teachers, administrators and community members.  Teams meet monthly to develop a one-year action plan for School and Family Partnerships, ensure the activities on the plan happen and then evaluate the activities that take place.  They also help to publicize the vents that involve families and gather ideas for new activities.

    If you are interested in joining a team, please contact the school’s ATP Chairperson.  For a list of staff key contacts, please click here.  You may also call the ATP Hotline at (509) 543-6771 for more information.  We look forward to serving you!
