State Superintendent Torlakson Joins Superintendents from Oregon and Washington to Advocate for Title II Funding
State Superintendent of Public Instruction (SSPI) Torlakson has partnered with the state superintendents from Oregon and Washington to send a letter to Congress advocating for the continuation of Title II funding (PDF) in the 2018 federal budget. Title II funds can be used at the state and local level to build system capacity to successfully implement standards and frameworks while meeting the specific, and often multiple, learning needs of a diverse student body. The SSPI and his fellow superintendents from the western states highlighted the critical importance of the support this funding provides for educators at all stages of their careers.
