2016 Assembly Resources
WSSDA’s Legislative Assembly is a key event that shapes WSSDA’s annual Legislative Priorities. WSSDA’s Legislative Committee solicits input from all Washington school boards on issues affecting public education. The committee meets twice during the summer to analyze and generate proposals in light of WSSDA’s standing positions for consideration at the Assembly. The Legislative Assembly then acts on these proposals and creates a comprehensive legislative agenda that includes WSSDA’s Standing Legislative Positions (SLPs), subject to final approval by the WSSDA Board of Directors.
Who should attend?
All school directors are encouraged to attend the Legislative Assembly. District staff are also invited to attend, although only school directors may address the assembly and only one director per district may vote on each issue. While legislative representatives from each district normally serve as delegates to the assembly, voting credentials may be shared among attending directors at each board’s discretion.
