About The Gifted Education Advisory Council (GEAC) is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization started in 1989 to serve the Lake Washington School District (LWSD) highly capable community, including, but not limited to, the LWSD Quest program.
LWSD Gifted Education Advisory Council cover
Mission To support the unique needs of highly capable students enrolled in the Lake Washington School District.

We approach this mission through four avenues:
■Outreach: fostering communication and connection among families and staff within the highly capable learning community, as well as fostering communication and understanding between the highly capable learning community and others.
■ Enrichment: supporting highly capable student learning in the classroom, making available funding for enhancements including, but not limited to, curriculum resources, excursions, and professional development for staff.
■ Education: offering information about and/or access to relevant education and support opportunities for parents, families, students, and educators in the highly capable community.
■ Advocacy: advocating for the needs of highly capable students before families, the LWSD School Board, and the LWSD administration, and supporting broader advocacy efforts on behalf of the highly capable community.
Description GEAC works in coordination with the LWSD and the highly capable community, similarly to how a PTA serves your local neighborhood school. GEAC membership consists of families in the LWSD highly capable community, primarily current or past Quest families. Educators and other community members are welcome and encouraged to join. All are volunteers. Our operating budget is funded 100% by direct donations and corporate matching.
