HB 2167 - DIGEST

Changes the date to February 1, 2014, for identifying challenged schools in need of improvement and a subset of the schools that are the persistently lowest-achieving schools in the state.


April 02, 2014

To the Honorable Speaker and Members,
The House of Representatives of the State of Washington

Ladies and Gentlemen:

I am returning herewith, without my approval as to Section 2, House Bill No. 2167 entitled:

"AN ACT Relating to changing the date by which challenged schools are identified."

This legislation changes the date by which OSPI is required to identify challenged schools in need of improvement and schools that are persistently lowest-achieving in the state.

Section 2 is an emergency clause section that will make this act effective immediately. The due dates in this legislation have come to pass and the emergency clause is therefore not necessary to implement the substantive provisions of the bill.

For these reasons I have vetoed Section 2 of House Bill No. 2167.

With the exception of Section 2, House Bill No. 2167 is approved.

Respectfully submitted,
Jay Inslee
