Social and Emotional Learning Bill heard in Senate Education

Our members strongly support creating positive school climates through social and emotional learning and were on hand to testify in support of Senate Bill 5688 to achieve this goal. The bill would establish a work group to develop guidelines and benchmarks to improve social and emotional behaviors in the classroom. WSPTA member Sarah Butcher has been tirelessly working on this legislation and has established SEL for WA to garner support.  This is a key component of our Top 5 Platform.
