It’s time to register for the WASA • WSSDA • WASBO Legislative Conference coming to you virtually in 2022. Conference details follow―act now to save your place!
The 2022 Legislative Session is the second year of the 67th Biennial Legislature. Known as the “short” session (limited to 60 days), the action will be fast and furious. Even though this is considered a “non-budget” session, fiscal issues will be a major topic, especially for K–12 education—with ongoing enrollment declines, staffing shortages, and other pandemic-related complications. Of course, policy issues will also be plentiful, even though educators’ plates are already overflowing.
With continuing budget concerns and an urgent need to put a “pause on policy,” it will be essential for education leaders to actively participate in the legislative process to ensure our needs are not forgotten. Additionally, it will be critical, perhaps more than ever before, for education leaders to speak with one voice.
The WASA • WSSDA • WASBO Legislative Conference is your opportunity to hear updates on our shared legislative priorities, the current education budget and policy landscape, and how to effectively advocate for our collective needs. We encourage you to join your colleagues for this important event!
Superintendents, central office administrators, school board directors.
