E2E Initiative for Student Learning
A Pacific Northwest Model for Collective Impact
From 2013-2016, E3 Washington worked with four Washington school districts and higher education to develop local, state and regional models of school-community partnerships that support interdisciplinary, project and place-based learning. This was part of a larger EPA grant which E3 managed with affiliates in Alaska, Idaho and Oregon. This project reached over 21,400 Washington K-12 students, and will have lasting effects for many years.
