Board of Trustees Calls on Legislature
to Fully Fund Basic Education

The Washington State Legislature is not adequately funding basic education. That’s the key finding of the McCleary decision reached by the state supreme court in 2012. The court stated that basic education "means whatever is necessary to give students the opportunity to master the state’s four learning goals and the Essential Academic Learning." The State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) notes that if the state’s funding formulas provide only a portion of what it actually costs a school to pay its teachers, get kids to school, and keep the lights on, then the legislature cannot maintain that it is fully funding basic education through its funding formulas.

It is for this reason that the Lake Washington Schools Foundation Board of Trustees has unanimously voted to adopt a resolution calling on the state legislature to fulfill their responsibility and fully fund basic education.
