A Call To ActionStacy Crain2/14/20192/28/2019
A Call To Action
WSPTA recognizes that students deserve to learn in modern, safe school facilities. Most school districts do not have sufficient building capacity to meet the needs of state-mandated reduced class sizes and high school requirements, and often use portables lacking adequate bathrooms and lunchroom facilities. Current funding is insufficient for districts to build permanent structures to provide the appropriate environment. Without local funds, districts cannot access the matching funds in the state School Construction Assistance Program. We are asking you to contact your legislators to support legislation to address the issues, we encourage you to add your personal story. Thank you ... read full article
