No Solution Yet For Washington School Districts Facing Shortfalls
As the Washington Legislature reaches the later portion of its session, how school districts that have been hurt by the funding changes created in the wake of the McCleary decision can be helped remains unclear. Republican 14th District Representative Gina Mosbrucker says there have been a few bills introduced but haven’t gotten a lot of traction. She is hoping the answers come as the budget develops. Mosbrucker believes the state has sufficient funds to backfill the district to hold them harmless until the school funding process established in 2018 can be fully put into place.
