CCL Tribal Liaison

Chapter 406, Laws of 2019 (Workforce Education Investment) expanded career connected learning opportunities to students statewide. Funding provides 1.0 FTE staff at the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for outreach to tribal schools to facilitate access to and support enrollment in career connected learning (CCL) opportunities for tribal students. This includes career awareness and exploration, career preparation, and career launch programs, as defined in RCW 28C.30.020, so that tribal students may receive high school or college credit to the maximum extent possible. (Workforce Education Investment Acc - State)

Allocated FTEs for ESDs

Existing levels of Educational Service District (ESD) funding for the K-20 telecommunications network and the student mental health and safety network are moved into the ESD program. This funding has historically been passed through the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to the ESDs and will now be allocated to the ESDs directly. With this shift, funding is provided as FTE staff allocations at the ESDs so it can grow appropriately with future compensation adjustments. Decreases in this program are offset by increases in the ESD program. (General Fund - State)

Integrated Early Learning Options

Funding is provided for the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction to collaborate with the Department of Children, Youth, and Families to complete a report with options and recommendations for administrative efficiencies and long-term strategies to align and integrate high-quality early learning programs administered by both agencies. The report is due September 1, 2020. (General Fund - State)

Student Mental Health & Safety

Funding is provided to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction for statewide supports for the student mental health and safety network established in Chapter 333, Laws of 2019 (Second Substitute House Bill 1216). Activities funded include statewide coordination and oversight of the regional network at the Educational Service Districts, implementation grants to school districts, and a contract with the UW-Forefront suicide prevention program. (General Fund - State)

School Nurse Corps

Funding for the School Nurse Corps is moved from the Grant and Pass-throughs program to the Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) agency program. Funding at OSPI provides statewide support for the nursing network in coordination with the educational service districts that provide direct services to districts. Increases in this program are offset by decreases in the Grants and Pass-throughs program. (General Fund - State)

Archives/Records Management

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of state archiving and state records center costs from the Secretary of State’s Office. (General Fund - State)
