In 2008, the Washington State Legislature enacted Senate Bill 6313 Recognizing disability history in the public education system.
Each October, public schools, colleges, and universities must conduct and promote educational activities that provide instruction, awareness, and understanding of disability history and people with disabilities. The activities may include school assemblies or guest speakers.
