Please join us in Olympia on Friday, January 31st, 2014. We will be meeting with various politicians and public servants at their offices to discuss our needs as a profession and to ask for support with our efforts to grow our numbers and recognition in the state. Among agenda items to discuss are the need to fully fund basic education, the need to understand the mental health needs of students in the school setting, and the need for the legislature to recognize and codify into law the importance of the role of school social workers in public schools.
We already have meetings scheduled with Rep. Eric Pettigrew of the 37th Legislative District and Senator Christine Rolfes of the 23rd Legislative District. This is an ongoing process that we will continue to work on over the next few weeks. Please consider joining us for this very important day. We will be posting additional information soon. As always, if you have questions please contact us.
