Legislative Positions

Legislative positions are WSSDA’s call to action on legislative issues, whether at the state or federal level. These positions guide the work of WSSDA staff and those acting on behalf of WSSDA.

Legislative Committee: stewards of legislative positions

The WSSDA Legislative Committee is authorized to annually review and initiate legislative positions and to recommend changes to consolidate and strengthen the positions. The results of such proposals and recommendations are presented for action in writing at the subsequent Legislative Assembly.

Amending or adding positions

To amend or propose new positions, WSSDA annually requests proposals from school boards. School directors may recommend that WSSDA take a position on a new issue or that it amend an existing position. Once the annual proposal window closes, the Legislative Committee reviews all proposals and makes recommendations for action to be voted on during the annual Legislative Assembly.
