fostering a media literacy movement across classrooms and communities.
Media Literacy Legislation in Washington
In 2016 Washington was the first state to pass media literacy legislation, followed by further successes in 2017, 2019, 2021, and in 2022. We are delighted that starting in 2019 our legislative mandates were accompanied with funding that have made a Media Literacy Grant Program possible and will now support a new Media Literacy Ambassadors Program. We are also proud to now have the nation’s first Media Literacy Supervisor in our WA State Office of the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
