Washington State Supreme Court hearing to review state’s McCleary case progress scheduled for Oct. 24

The 2017-19 operating budget and the school funding bill HB 2242 were the major pieces of the framework for the McCleary fix that was the primary issue of the 2017 session. As provided in the 2012 court order, the state provided a report on its funding progress after the 2017 session concluded.

The court has scheduled a hearing on October 24 to help evaluate whether this solution meets the constitutional requirement to adequately fund basic education.

More information and copies of the briefs of the parties are available on the court’s website.
