2018-2019 WA State PTA Legislative Priorities

Washington State PTA is the oldest and largest child advocacy association in the state with a 112 year history of advocating for the health, safety, well-being, and education of EVERY child in Washington. The WSPTA legislative platform is a two-year platform to mirror the Washington state legislative cycle. On the even-numbered years, like this one, the new platform is voted on by members at the legislative assembly in the fall. The top five issues become the short-term platform and consist of the priority issues when advocating throughout the year. Other issues are placed on an “also supported” list. On Oct. 21-22nd advocates from across the state met in Auburn at the 2018 WSPTA Legislative Assembly to vote on the current long-term and short-term policy platforms for the PTA. The top 5 priorities as voted by the membership are:

    1. Social Emotional Learning
    2. School Construction and Simple Majority for Bonds
    3. Prevent Gun Violence
    4. Strategies to Address the Teacher Shortage
    5. Strategic K-12 Investments to Close Gaps

To learn more about these issues as well as the other supported issues of the WSPTA please visit the advocacy page of the Washington State PTA website.
