Strengthening Student Educational Outcomes

Strengthening Student Educational Outcomes

The 2013 Washington State Legislature passed a bill (ESSB 5946) into law that affirms the intent of our constitution to make ample provision for the education of all children. Lawmakers grouped the new statutes under the title Strengthening Student Educational Outcomes.

Funding is directed toward three areas of focus:

  • Early literacy programming for beginning readers
  • Rigorous adoption of instructional and assessment strategies proven to help all struggling learners
  • Integration of best practices for discipline that keep students in school and on a path of continuous academic improvement.
