The Legislative Committee follows proposed legislation that affects our children’s educational futures and keeps our local Marvista PTSA informed of the issues, changes and potential consequences.


Every two years, Washington State PTA chooses a legislative priority platform. We continue to support all of our legislative principles  as well as National PTA’s public policy agenda, but we focus on the priorities. In year two of this cycle (like this year) we consider adding priorities as “also supported” and we consider amendments. Clik the  following link to view our updated platform for this next legislative session.
