Advocacy Committee member Melissa Stone testified Pro on SHB 1658, allowing students to earn up to 2 credits for work. Melissa asked members of the Senate Early Learning & K12 Committee to consider lowering the number of hours required to earn 1 credit from 360 hours (180 hours for 0.5 credit) to 240 hours (120 hours for 0.5 credit). She also suggested that the credits could be earned for work linked to the student’s High School and Beyond Plan and on learning standards beyond simply financial literacy.
