Career Connected Learning
Funding is provided for implementation of Governor request legislation to support the development of a statewide system of career connected learning. Additional funding is provided for coordinators to expand career preparation and career launch course offerings; alignment between training plans and courses of study; and staff to improve credit transfer and articulation agreements between high schools, community colleges and institutions of higher education.
Since the 2017-18 academic year, tuition operating fees for resident undergraduates have been capped at approximately two percent annually. Additional funding is provided in recognition that institution operating costs, including compensation and central services, exceed estimated increases in undergraduate operating fee revenue.
Enhancements and Student Supports
Funding is provided for academic program enhancements, student support services, and other key university priorities that maintain a quality academic experience for Washington students.
Special Education Study
Funding is provided for the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to study special education services in public K-12 education systems. WSIPP will review the available research literature with a focus on evidence from rigorous research on impacts of specific special education services on student outcomes. Where available, the study will focus on student success outcomes including successful transitions to life post-high school, student engagement, disciplinary action, and academic outcomes. To the extent possible, WSIPP will study the cost-effectiveness of various successful approaches to service delivery, including both broad strategies and specific services. It will submit a preliminary report summarizing findings on special education strategies to the Legislature and the Governor's Office by September 1, 2020, and a final report to the Legislature and the Governor's Office by June 30, 2021.
Support WSIPP Projects
The Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) is a nonpartisan research institute based at The Evergreen State College. Funding will support the cost of six research studies that were originally underestimated.
Four-year Higher Ed WFSE
This funds the 2019-21 collective bargaining agreement with the Washington Federation of State Employees (WFSE) includes a 3.0 percent general wage increase, effective July 1, 2019; a 3.0 percent general wage increase, effective July 1, 2020; salary adjustments for targeted job classifications; a shift differential increase; and increase to $14 per hour for minimum wage.
State Public Employee Benefits Rate
Health insurance funding is provided for state employees who are not represented by a union, who are covered by a bargaining agreement that is not subject to financial feasibility determination, or who are not part of the coalition of unions for health benefits. The insurance funding rate is $977 per employee per month for fiscal year 2020 and $978 per employee per month for fiscal year 2021.
State Rep Employee Benefits Rate
This provides health insurance funding as part of the master agreements for employees who bargain for health benefits as part of a coalition of unions. The insurance funding rate is $977 per employee per month for fiscal year 2020 and $978 per employee per month for fiscal year 2021.
Non-Rep General Wage Increase
Funding is provided for wage increases for state employees who are not represented by a union or who are covered by a bargaining agreement that is not subject to financial feasibility determination. It is sufficient for a general wage increase of 3 percent, effective July 1, 2019, and a general wage increase of 3 percent, effective July 1, 2020. This item includes both general government and higher education workers.
PERS & TRS Plan 1 Benefit Increase
For eligible Public Employees' and Teachers' Retirement Systems Plan 1 members, this item provides a one-time, ongoing increase of 3 percent, up to a maximum of $62.50 per month.
Remove Minimum Wage Double Count
The statutory minimum wage is less than the proposed minimum state employee wage, so separate funding for the minimum is removed.
Health Coalition FSA Fund Transfer
This moves funding for negotiated medical flexible spending arrangements (FSA) from individual agency budgets. It will be provided to the Health Care Authority, which will administer the benefit.
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's allocated share of charges for the state archives and state records center.
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's allocated share of charges for state government audits.
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's anticipated share of legal service charges.
CTS Central Services
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's allocated share of charges from the Consolidated Technology Services Agency (WaTech) for the Office of the Chief Information Officer, Office of Cyber Security, state network, security gateways, and geospatial imaging services.
DES Central Services
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's allocated share of charges from the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) for campus rent, utilities, parking, and contracts; a capital project surcharge; financing cost recovery; public and historic facilities; real estate services; risk management services; personnel service rates; the Perry Street child care center; and the department's enterprise applications.
OFM Central Services
Agency budgets are adjusted to reflect each agency's allocated share of charges from the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for the One Washington project and OFM enterprise systems.
Central Services - Attorney General
The current funding for legal services provided by the Attorney General's Office (AGO) for The Evergreen State College (TESC) is insufficient to ensure an appropriate level of risk management and support the level of services required in an increasingly complex legal landscape for higher education. An increase to TESC's assistant attorney general allocation will accommodate the need for increased legal services to respond to time sensitive deadlines and provide effective risk management.
