Working to transform the child welfare system.

HB 2607 establishes the Washington Integrated Student Supports Protocol for the purpose of coordinating academic and nonacademic supports to reduce barriers to academic achievement and educational attainment. The framework of this protocol would include: needs assessments for at-risk students, integration of academic and nonacademic supports, community partnerships to support nonacademic supports, and tracked over time to determine student progress and evolving needs. The Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction would be tasked with the creation of a work group to determine how to best implement the framework. The bill would amend current statute to allow for funds from the learning assistance program to support the integrated student supports protocol.
