State of Washington 52nd Legislature 1992 Regular Session
By Senate Committee on Education (originally sponsored by Senators Moore, Skratek and Pelz)
Read first time 02/07/92.
AN ACT Relating to before-and-after-school child care; and creating a new section.
BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF WASHINGTON:
NEW SECTION. Sec. 1. The legislature finds that school-age children need the opportunity to attend a quality, developmentally appropriate before-and-after-school care program. The cost of before-and-after-school programs creates financial hardships for many families and often results in children being left alone at home. A structured before-and-after-school program can ensure the safety and welfare of school-age children. The office of the superintendent of public instruction, the department of social and health services, and the child care coordinating committee shall develop a plan for implementation of a before-and-after-school child care program. The plan shall be submitted to the legislature by December 1, 1992.
