Every two years, Washington State PTA votes in a Top 5 and designates other issues that it considers timely. The association has numerous positions that support the well-being and education of all children and this process helps us focus our advocacy.
In the off years, adjustments can be made to the two-year platform, but the Top 5 stay in place. A new platform will be voted on in October 2014.
