Read our 2021 Legislative Priorities

We must change the very foundation of our education systems and build the infrastructure to implement student-centered, equitable solutions. We must focus on community-driven solutions to support students and families who have been historically and systemically underserved - including students of color, students in poverty, students qualifying for special education services, students learning English, students experiencing homelessness, and students impacted by trauma. We must ensure that in this moment of crisis and opportunity, we create meaningful and lasting change. Together we can build better systems for the future of Washington students and families.
