Help South Whidbey Schools

SWEPTA members!  Help South Whidbey schools. Contact your state reps and urge them to FULLY FUND Washington state schools.  The McCleary decision stated that legislators must fund K-12 schools but they are far behind reaching that goal by 2018 ($3,000-5,000 per student!). Programs get cut locally to make up the difference.  Our reps are:  Senator Barbara Bailey (360) 786-7618, Rep. Norma Smith (360) 786-7884, Rep. Dave Hayes (360) 786-7914.  (email through website or write a letter!).  Thank you!
