Friends and neighbors,

Our economy will continue to grow and change, and, to answer the needs of tomorrow we need our education system to be responsive now to the 21st century’s digital economy. At the state level, we are building on the preparatory work already accomplished; establishing pathways for graduation, setting standards for computer science in K-12 and requiring computer science to be offered as an elective in every high school. On the horizon are additional innovative policies for the future of Washington’s public education system that will allow our students to thrive and reach their full potential. Click the video, linked here and below, to hear about what is on the horizon.[vc_video link=”″ title=”On the Horizon for Washington Education with State Senator Lisa Wellman”
