- Fund smaller K-12 class sizes, additional support staff, and professional & competitive base salaries and benefits for all educators, including higher education employees. This includes protecting the right to invest in our local schools through local levies and opposing any restrictions on collectively bargaining educator compensation at the district level.
- We believe local families and educators know what their students need to be successful and that they have a fundamental right to make decisions about their children and public schools.
With the state’s September 1, 2018 school funding deadline looming, here is our single legislative goal for the 2017 Washington Legislature: Fully fund K-12 basic education as required by state law, the Supreme Court’s McCleary decision and the Washington Constitution.
We've invited our state legislators to a local education forum on March 11 to discuss progress toward fully funding our schools. It's critical that we keep up the pressure throughout the 105-day legislative session. After all, this is THE McCleary Session. RSVP today!
