Rolfes selected for state education committees

OLYMPIA – State Sen. Christine Rolfes (D-23rd) has been appointed as a member of Washington’s Education Accountability System Oversight Committee and the Quality Education Council.

“We need to make sure that all children, across the state, are getting the quality education that our state constitution mandates,” Rolfes said. “As a member of these committees, I look forward to working with my colleagues to identify and fund proven, sustainable solutions for improving achievement for all students.”

The Education Accountability System Oversight Committee will monitor the effectiveness of the state’s system of support, assistance and intervention in improving persistently low-performing schools and student achievement, make recommendations as necessary and submit a progress report to the Legislature every two years.

The Quality Education Council was created after the Legislature passed major education reforms in 2009. The council develops strategic recommendations for the implementation of a new definition of Basic Education and the financing needed to support.
