School Safety and Student Well-Being Advisory Committee (SS-SWAC)

In the 2019 session, under HB 1216, the legislature directed the OSPI to establish a School Safety and Student Well-Being Advisory Committee (SS-SWAC).

The purpose of the School Safety and Student Well-Being Advisory Committee (SS-SWAC) is to advise the superintendent, OSPI’s School Safety Center, Regional Safety Centers, school districts, and public and private schools on all matters related to comprehensive school safety and student well-being.

Youth Advisory Council (SS-SWAC-YAC)

To ensure the inclusion of youth voice, the School Safety and Student Well-Being Advisory Committee - Youth Advisory Council (SS-SWAC-YAC) was created in the fall of 2019 to convene youth perspective and voice from students across the state and demographic groups. SS-SWAC-YAC members are considered members of the SS-SWAC and their convenings provide a platform for youth to discuss school safety and student well-being topics that are important to them.

 

If you have questions or would like more information about the SS-SWAC-YAC, please contact Ella DeVerse, School Safety and Student Well-Being Program Supervisor.
