Washington State PTA Legislative Priorities 

2019-2020 Legislative Platform (Top Five)
More details on the Washington State PTA website.
The Washington State PTA legislative platform is a two-year platform to mirror the Washington state legislative cycle. On the even-numbered years, the new platform is voted on by members at the legislative assembly in the fall. The top five issues become our short-term platform and consist of our priority issues when advocating throughout the year. Other issues are placed on an “also supported” list. During the odd-numbered years, members vote to amend current issues or to add new, emerging issues to the also supported list.  For more detailed information on the Five Legislative Priorities, visit WAStatePTA.
  • Social Emotional Learning 
  • School Construction and Simple Majority for Bonds
  • Strategies to Address Teacher Shortages
