All school boards in Washington state are encouraged to rank WSSDA’s legislative positions, regardless of attendance at the General Assembly. See below for more information and contact WSSDA’s strategic advocacy team if you have any questions.
Legislative positions can be found in the assembly handbook starting on page 27.
To help you with this process you can:
The final list of legislative positions can be found at wssda.org/positions. After reviewing the positions, consider any changes to your district’s priority positions and consult with your board, if needed.
The prioritization ranking form will be sent out on Monday, November 1st and must be submitted by 12:00 noon on Friday, November 5th.
The complete list of permanent and legislative positions can be found on our website. The handbook will be posted on the General Assembly page, available to download, by August 24th.
The Advocacy Insights webinars provide context for many of the positions and potential priorities of our legislature. Take some time before General Assembly to review the recorded webinars.
A General Assembly “Know Before You Go” webinar will be held October 19th as part of the Advocacy Insights series and recorded for later viewing. To join the live webinar, register here. Additional materials and resources to support your learning will be posted on this event website.
