- Statement from PSESD
As superintendents of the Puget Sound region, representing nearly 40% of students across Washington state, our unwavering focus is on students. Our legislative priorities are aimed to create opportunities for each and every student to succeed in school and in life, and to eliminate opportunity gaps based on race, income and other factors that have historically disadvantaged young people.
The Legislature has made great strides in increasing funding for education, for which we are thankful. The state must continue to adjust the funding system to match student needs today -- particularly student wellness, safety, special education and equitable access to modern school facilities.
