If passed, this bill will do the following:

  • Continue the very successful media literacy grant program initiated with legislation passed in 2019. Read more about  our media literacy grant program here.
  • Provide grants for the formation of professional learning communities. These communities will share challenges their districts face and explore new strategies for integrating media literacy education in their classrooms.
  • Support two media literacy conferences held in eastern and western Washington.

SB5242 would allow Washington to maintain its position of leadership in passing media literacy legislation.
