HB 2288 - Authorization to lease space for SBHC
SB 6563 - Authorization to lease space for SBHC

SB 5395 - Sexual Health Education


This bill mandates that ALL public schools will teach Comprehensive Sexual Health to all students ages Kindergarten to 12th grade.  The bill takes away local control and the ability of local school boards to offer a program that is sensitive to their community.  The bill requires the use of "skills based instruction"  that will ask the children to "demonstrate" their knowledge of sexual health and data on sexual behavior will be collected to comply with requirements under an "evidence based" program. 


These two bills create legal authorization to lease school premises to medical clinics for the purpose of offering services to students, staff and their families, and community. 

HB 2708 - Creates workgroup to govern SBHC

HB 2184 - Sexual Health Education

Creates a workgroup that will govern SBHC.  The workgroup includes many government agencies, health organizations and one PTA member but little citizen and parent input.  The group is tasked with establishing, operating, and funding SBHC that will provide primary medical, dental services, and mental health services to students.  It is unclear if parents will be notified of any care their child receives at the SBHC.
This bill mandates that ALL public schools will teach Comprehensive Sexual Health to all students.  The below also allows for an unelected body named "Sexual Health Work Group" will be able to fill in the details on how sexual health is taught and what grade levels it will reach.  Unlike SB 5395, HB 2184 is more vague in the details, because it empowers an evolving set of goals as dictated by the work group.   The bill also requires children to learn "affirmative consent" which teaches children how to make "conscious and voluntary agreement to engage in sexual activity".


SB 5683 / HB 1771 - Washington Baby Act


The Washington Baby Act promotes a universal home visitation entitlement plan to visit the homes of every new born baby.  The bill claims to be voluntary but amendments to ensure that home visitation would remain strictly voluntary failed in both the Senate and House versions of the bill.

The Dept of Early Learning, now called Dept of Children Youth and Families has a precedent of changing voluntary programs into mandatory.  In the year 2013 HB 1723 created the QRIS Early Achievers system as a voluntary program but two years later in the year 2015, HB 1491 turned voluntary into "shall implement" the QRIS Early Achievers system.

Thank you to the many of you who did call and email our legislators.  These bills are currently on "hold" for this session, but we expect it to move forward again in a future session.  We will keep you notified of any progress.

SB 6279 - Expanding SBHC

This bill mandates every school district to partner with a "health care sponsor" to establish a SBHC.  The health center will eventually offer primary medical care, dental, and mental health services to students, staff, families, and the community.  The bill also requests to have the ability to tap into private and state medical insurance plans to receive reimbursement for services provided.  It is unclear if the "health care sponsor" must be a federally recognized medical facility or if any social service organization can qualify.
