Unions representing 98% of the 140,000 K 12 employees have ratified the first ever agreement with Governor Inslee’s Office of Financial Management (OFM) on SEBB funding levels for the 2020 launch of SEBB. It is too early to publish the details of the agreement but I can say that all of the unions were pleased with the outcome. We expect details to be available on October 1 and then we wait for OFM to determine if the agreement is financially feasible. If they determine it is financially feasible, then Governor Inslee must put the required funds into his 2019-21 budget. Then we have to encourage the legislature to fully fund SEBB. Many steps to go but we are on the right path.
