Policy Changes

Health Benefit Rate Adjustment

Funding is adjusted based on updated rates for fiscal year 2021 for the School Employees' Benefits Board program. Modeling for prior rate estimates used assumptions based on experience from the Public Employees' Benefits Board, the adjusted rate incorporates new data from SEBB open enrollment especially regarding plan choice and demographic information. Enrollment information is subject to change pending final verification and resolution of on-going appeals. (General Fund - State, WA Opportunity Pathways Account - State)

Enhanced Institution Funding

Funding is provided to increase the enhancement for the differentiated instructional needs of students in institutional education programs. The 2019 Legislature provided enhanced funding for this purpose for an estimated 20 percent of institutional education students, but data shows that the rate of incidence of students with individualized education programs in Washington's institutions is at least 35 percent. The needs funded with this enhancement may include, but are not limited to, one-on-one instruction, enhanced access to counseling for social emotional needs of the student, and services to identify the proper level of instruction at the time of student entry into the facility. (General Fund - State)

Institutional Student Records

Funding is provided for student records coordinators to manage the transmission of academic records with Green Hill academic school and Naselle youth camp school. The 2019 Legislature provided funding for this purpose at Echo Glen children's center. This additional funding provides the same support to Washington's other two long-term juvenile institutions. (General Fund - State)

PERS & TRS Plan 1 Benefit Increase

For eligible Public Employees' and Teachers' Retirement Systems Plan 1 members, this item provides an increase of 1.5 percent, up to a maximum of $22 per month. (General Fund - State, WA Opportunity Pathways Account - State)
