AWSP Grade Level Leadership Committee Application

Want to Apply?

Interested in serving on either the Elementary Leadership Committee, Middle Level Leadership Committee, or the High School Leadership Committee? Fill out the quick online application. Our ESD Regional Leadership team will look at the applications to make an informed decision regarding open positions.We have reopened the application as we still have some positions without applications.

If you have any questions about the application, please email or call Julie Woods at 1-800-562-6100. 


We've transitioned our component boards (formerly ESPAW, AWMLP, and WASSP) to our new Grade Level Leadership Committees. We made the move for a bunch of reasons, from trying to get more equitable representation across the state to making them more focused on serving our members and less about budgets and bylaws.

For a quick overview of some of these changes, read Dr. Scott Seaman's fall 2019 magazine article. To get a sense of how the new GLLCs operate, read the Standard Operating Procedures.
