You can help increase school library IT resources for students in Washington State.
Two bills, one in the House (HB 2695) and one in the Senate (SB 6460), have been introduced that will increase accountability and help provide more resources for school library information technology programs across the state.

- School library information technology programs–with certified teacher-librarians and the resources necessary to run them effectively–can increase student achievement on tests in all subject areas, and improve graduation rates.
- We owe it to all our students to provide greater access to the current technology and instruction they need to be ready for future jobs and for lifelong learning.
