Policy Changes

Increase WSCSC Spending Authority

Due to an increase in the number of charter public schools, the demands on the Washington State Charter School Commission (WSCSC) and its resources have increased dramatically. To provide the required technical assistance and support to ensure student success at these schools, the commission is provided increased spending authority to match anticipated revenue increases. (Charter Schools Oversight Account - State)

State Employee Benefits

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 $988 per employee per month for fiscal year 2022 and $1,018 per employee per month for fiscal year 2023. (Workforce Education Investment Acc - State, Dedicated Marijuana Acct - State, WA Opportunity Pathways Account - State, other funds)

Temporary Layoffs and Other Savings

This item reflects savings achieved from temporary layoffs or similar actions. (General Fund - Local, Education Legacy Trust Account - State, General Fund - Private/Local, other funds)

Non-Rep General Wage Increase

This reflects savings from the cancellation of the July 1, 2020 general wage increase for some non-represented, non-classified employees. (Performance Audits of Government - State, WA Opportunity Pathways Account - State, General Fund - Private/Local, other funds)

Legal Services

Adjustments are made for each agency’s anticipated cost of legal services provided by the Attorney General’s Office. Because legal services expenditures are based on consumption, funding provided in the central service model is not all inclusive. (Charter Schools Oversight Account - State, General Fund - State)
