WISE Washington

Cardea

WISE Washington is led by Cardea, which played a key role in the passage of the 2007 Healthy Youth Act in Washington State that requires school districts that provide sex education to offer medically accurate and comprehensive instruction. WISE Washington aims to advance implementation of the law, support local policy adoption and implementation and cross-leverage various related efforts statewide. WISE Washington developed the Capacity Assessment and Planning Tool (CAPT) which is now utilized in all of the WISE sites to provide baseline information about current district policies and practices.
