Senate: Funding is provided for the Washington State Institute for Public Policy (WSIPP) to conduct ongoing systematic reviews of educational practices and services in three areas of the state budget: early learning, K-12, and higher education. WSIPP is directed to produce inventories of evidence-based, research-based, and promising practices and services in these three areas, beginning December 1, 2016 with updates every 2 years thereafter. The bill also requires WSIPP to conduct a review of the state’s investments in these areas.
