Event Details

New for 2017: Each person who registers before January 8th will receive a free Top Five t-shirt!

Following the passage of Governor Inslee's budget, which includes $3.9B in education funding, WSPTA advocates will be able to hear from the Governor himself.

Ready to Rally? Advocates will be rallying on the capitol steps to celebrate Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday by celebrating Education as a Civil Right, alongside many other Washington State advocacy groups. 

Meet Your Legislators. The main reason for Focus Day is learning about Washington State PTA (WSPTA), our advocacy an legislative platform, and meeting with your legislators to talk about the importance of our Whole Child advocacy! Don't miss this opportunity for an exclusive audience with your elected officials. 

In addition to the Governor, new Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal will also spend time with us in the rotunda. Chris will talk about his vision for the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction, and his top priorities during the first 100 days of office.

Kids are welcome! There will be kids activities available on-site.
