ESN Coalition Policy Priorities for 2019
The Excellent Schools Now (ESN) Coalition has set goals that by 2030, 100 percent of students will graduate from high school in five years and 70 percent of Washington students will earn a post-secondary degree or credential.
In order to meet those goals, the state, districts, and schools must significantly increase efforts to support students to close opportunity and achievement gaps. ESN is committed to ensuring the investments made in our educational system improve outcomes for our systemically underserved students, particularly students experiencing poverty, students of color, English learners, students with disabilities, students in foster care, and students experiencing homelessness—creating a system that is transparent and accountable at every level.
We will work during the 2019 legislative session to provide quality educational opportunities to every student across the educational continuum, from Pre-K to postsecondary.
