SB 6555: Relating to requiring the Washington institute for public policy to conduct systematic reviews of investments in education

SB 6555 states that there is a need to implement a method of analyzing how state investments in public education are impacting students. The bill requires the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to conduct ongoing systematic reviews of high quality research to identify and update inventories of evidence-based, research- based, and promising educational practices and services, in early learning, K-12, and higher education that can lead to better educational outcomes coupled with a more efficient use of taxpayer dollars. In addition, WSIPP must review the state’s investments in the educational system to identify the investments that result in the most effective and evidence-based practices that reliably provide an opportunity for students to successfully meet the state-established student outcomes.

WSIPP must conduct ongoing systematic reviews and biannually report to the Governor and the Legislature by December 1, in every even-numbered year.
