Re: SB 5365 Increasing the capacity of school districts to recognize and respond to troubled youth.
Dear Chairman Litzow and committee members,
Washington State PTA supports state efforts in this area and sincerely thanks the sponsors. We would also encourage the state to offer school staff tools to address students’ social and emotional health, such as support to implement Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports and adoption of comprehensive K-12 Social Emotional Learning standards and the state support needed to implement them for all children.
