2013 House Bill 1177: Modifying the education accountability system to allow state criteria, resources, and strategies to be used for assistance and intervention
  1. Introduced by Rep. Kristine Lytton (Anacortes) (D) on January 18, 2013, modifies current law to require the Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) to consider new, specific criteria (“turnaround principles”) in designating challenged schools in need of improvement. This act sets out specific reporting requirements for OSPI in order to capture federal funding for such schools.
