Superintendent Reykdal to Outline Long-Term Education Vision


State Superintendent Chris Reykdal will hold a press conference to discuss his thoughts on education funding and a long-term education vision.


OLYMPIA—MAY 11, 2017—Superintendent Chris Reykdal will hold a press conference Wednesday, May 17, at the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to discuss his K-12 education vision and the McCleary funding compromise.


“The OSPI team and I have been working with and supporting legislators from all four caucuses since I took office,” Reykdal said. “And like everyone else, I’d like the Legislature to come to an agreement and pass a budget before July 1.


“But I also know that this isn’t just about solving a court case. We must ensure our funding is targeted to best support all of the students in our state as they reach for success. And we must also be sure our funding system is sustainable over time.”
