WASB Legislative Agenda

(applicable WASB Resolution in parenthesis)

2023-25 State Budget Priorities

  1. Provide school districts with, at minimum, inflationary increases in spendable resources and maximum flexibility to direct those dollars as needed at the local level. (2.19)
  2. Support increasing special education categorical aid with a goal to eventually reimburse 90% of prior year eligible costs. (2.31)

The WASB will also…

  • Stand up for local school board authority, including opposing the creation or expansion of unfunded state mandates (3.20) that would further burden limited available dollars.
  • Support creating a categorical aid for school-based mental health services such that this aid is not limited simply to covering school district expenditures for school social workers. (6.065)
