Residents of Washington State have a chance to influence OSPI’s budget requests to the governor and legislature. WFIS encourages all private and independent schools to engage their community of teachers and parents to participate in a survey “that asks the public to determine how important they find additional public K-12 education investments.” As tax payers in WA State, private school community members opinions are crucial to this survey!

The survey asks participants to decide how important they find things like student support services such as counseling and mental health, family engagement and outreach, school safety enhancements, programs that specifically address racial disparities in learning and discipline, and more.
The survey will remain open until Friday, June 8 and is available in 10 languages. Reykdal plans to release a second survey in mid-summer that will provide Washingtonians an opportunity to prioritize budget request items that emerge from this survey.
