Resources for K-12 Schools

Access to higher education is more important than ever before. A recent study by the Center on Education and the Workforce at Georgetown University found that by 2020, 65% of all jobs in the economy will require post secondary education. You work hard every day to prepare your students for this next step and equip them with the knowledge and skills to succeed and be productive citizens. 

Just as important as preparing students academically for college is ensuring they will have the financial resources to be able to attend. Some students will have access to scholarships and enough financial aid to cover the full cost of attendance, but most will not. Therefore, it’s important for families to begin saving when their kids are young (grade school, preschool, or younger), so that the dream of a college education can become a reality. 

Being an academic leader in your community, you’re in a unique position to help us share this important message with parents and grandparents. By partnering with GET, you can provide a valuable resource to your community that will reinforce and enhance the positive things you’re already doing in the classroom. 

We invite you to join more than 100 school districts, private schools, preschools and parent-teacher organizations statewide who are already partnering with us to connect with Washington families. Here’s how you can help:

Invite a GET representative to your school or PTA/PTO meeting

GET representatives are available to come to community events and parent nights at your school, as well as PTA/PTO meetings. Several formal and informal curriculums are available, including college savings information seminars, presentations and workshops.

Share these resources with parents and grandparents
