House and Senate budget negotiators just released the final budget. This budget document may be too dense and confusing so if you want more detail, go here (start with page 177). Sorry but they have not yet published a good short summary of the budget. When they do, I will include it…here is a summary.
With only one hiccup, PSE’s priorities were fully funded!
🙂 Central and Western Washington University agreements funded.
🙂 PEBB insurance agreement funded.
🙂 SEBB insurance agreement funded.
🙁 Two days per year of paraeducator training – this is the one shortcoming of the budget. PSE wanted four days per year.
Other important notes:
….2% salary increase effective 9-1-19
….2.1% salary increase effective 9-1-20
