Every year, the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges' Communications Department publishes documents that support system legislative and education efforts.
Information from colleges is vital to these publications. Thank you for your help and support!
Below is a list of annual publications and their approximate deadlines. We will send instructions specific to each publication four to six weeks in advance of the deadline.
Other State Board departments request information from their counterparts (e.g. Association of College Trustees' annual Transforming Lives award nominations). PIOs have varying levels of involvement in those projects. We will do our best to keep PIOs informed of those requests.
