2016 Access, Equity & Excellence

League of Education Voter’s 6th Annual Activist Training

Saturday, January 23rd, 2016

9:00 - 4:00 pm

In Last year’s legislative session, elected officials directed over one billion dollars towards K-12 funding.

  • Where did the billion dollars go? How can you find out?
  • Are all communities being asked about how money should be spent?
  • Should districts with higher-needs students receive more money?

Join the League of Education Voters and a host of community partners as we follow the money and ask the question on everyone’s mind: Is Funding an Equity Issue? Get the knowledge and the tools you need to speak up and start this important conversation in your own community, all among the company of like-minded education advocates. 

Panel topics will include:

  • The importance of career and technical education in meeting the needs of Washington businesses, 
  • The status of charter schools in Washington state,
  • Education funding and update on McCleary,
  • Advocacy for families of children with special needs (in English and Spanish),
  • Financial Aid 101, 
  • And a lunchtime panel on parent organizing in King County.
