This past Monday, in our efforts to advocate for Health Professionals in all schools, The Alki PTA Advocacy Committee submitted a Legislative Proposal to the Washington State PTA Advocacy Committee. We are participating in their process to choose their Top 5 priorities for the next 2-year legislative session. If our proposal is accepted as one of the Top 5, we will be working with them to gather bipartisan support to get a bill passed to increase funding for School Nurses, Counselors, Psychologists, and Social Workers. The Final Draft of the proposal is attached here.
Thank you to Mike U.B., Davina Dilley, Salleigh Knox, Heidi Zamora and the many others that helped with researching, discussing, asking questions, writing, proof-reading, consulting, formatting, and more!
