Call to Action: Support HB 1377

Dear Washington State PTA member,

Inclusion of social emotional learning and trauma-informed practices at schools has been demonstrated to lead to better outcomes for students, and it is WSPTA’s top legislative priority during this legislative session. Social emotional skills complement cognitive skills and are associated with increased academic achievement, higher income, better health, and social engagement. By bolstering the crucial role of social emotional learning and trauma-informed methods in education, Washington can help students do better in school, and lead to more successful and fulfilling lives.

We are asking you to contact your legislators with the following message here to support legislation to address this issue, which you can customize if you desire. Thank you for advocating for the 1.1 million students of Washington to have the best opportunity to reach their highest potential.

Thank you,

Nancy Chamberlain
Legislative Director
