On a final vote of 48-1 (Senator Hasegawa the only “no”), the Senate gave its final approval to SB 6388. It now only has one step to go; Governor Inslee’s signature. This fix-it bill gives paraeducators one additional year, until September 1, 2019, to meet the minimum employment requirements. It also gives school districts a full year to implement the training if the legislature funds the four day course of study for paraeducators in the 2019-21 budget.
