Sign the petition to support Healthy Students & Safe Schools

Students in Washington's public schools deserve to be healthy and safe. School safety is a priority for WEA members -- our students can’t learn unless they have safe schools. This means making sure ALL students receive the social and mental health services and support they need -- in addition to having caring, qualified, committed teachers and support professionals.

Please add your name to our petition and share why you believe healthy students and safe schools should be a legislative budget priority. We'll deliver the petition to Gov. Inslee and the Legislature in Olympia during WEA's annual Lobby Day on Feb. 18.
