OLYMPIA, Washington — The Washington Supreme Court is expecting a report from the Legislature next week on its progress toward fixing the way the state pays for public schools.

Even though lawmakers are not finished with their work, the office of the Washington attorney general told The News Tribune newspaper ( on Wednesday they will be meeting that deadline.

The high court held the state in contempt last year over lawmakers' failure to deliver a plan to fully pay for basic education by 2018. The court said it wouldn't impose sanctions until after this legislative session. The contempt ordered wanted a report right after the session, which is scheduled to end on Sunday.

Lawmakers expect to continue their work on the McCleary decision and the state budget at a special session.
