Policy Changes

DES Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Department of Enterprise Services (DES) for campus rent, utilities, parking, and contracts; capital project surcharges; financing cost recovery; public and historic facilities; real estate services; risk management services; personnel service rates; the Perry Street child care center; small agency services; and the department’s enterprise applications. (General Fund - State)

OFM Central Services

Adjustments are made to reflect each agency’s anticipated share of charges from the Office of Financial Management (OFM) for statewide financial applications, One Washington, and other OFM central services. (General Fund - State)

Language Access

The Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Youth (CDHY) is comprised of multilingual staff who serve deaf and hard of hearing students and families. When the agency experiences staff turnover, employees often need support in learning American Sign Language to effectively communicate and perform their duties. Funding is provided for language access support for CDHY staff. (General Fund - State)

STRIVE Program Pilot

During the 2019-20 school year, the Washington School for the Deaf enrollment increased by 42 percent in elementary school programs. Many of the students have special needs, and the school is not able to maintain a classroom for special needs like autism and others. Funding is provided for additional resources for programs that support elementary students with variable special education needs. (General Fund - State)

CDHY Account Update

The spending level of the Center for Deaf and Hard of Hearing’s (CDHY) non-appropriated account is increased because it no longer matches anticipated receipts. This update will allow the agency to provide greater transparency into its financial management strategies. (Deaf/Hard of Hearing Youth Acct - Non-Appropriated)

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)

Attorney General
