Washington state lawmakers are working to finalize budgets before the end of the legislative session on April 25th. More information can be found in the WSPTA Legislative Report.
For those parents who are interested in reaching out to legislators in support of public school funding, the Seattle Council PTSA (SCPTSA) has prepared the attached sample letters as a starting point.
The SCPTSA recommends sharing personal stories to give legislators the information they may not have – how their decision impacts our individual schools, our individual kids, and letting them know that the money they invest in our districts has real impacts on our kids.
