Everything You Want to Know About the Budget
Seattle Public Schools (SPS) will be hosting two budget work sessions this fall for parents and community members to learn budget background information and to gather feedback on the question, “What Do You Value?” as it relates to potential funding changes for the 2017-18 school year.
Tuesday, October 25, 2016 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence, 2445 3rd Avenue South in the Auditorium
Thursday, November 3, 2016 from 6 p.m.-8 p.m. at the South Shore K-8 School cafeteria, 4800 S Henderson Street
Both meetings will provide an overview of the district’s budget and planning process as well as an opportunity for our families to make recommendations to the District’s Leadership Team and School Board regarding what their ideas would be if the district receives additional funds or has funding reductions that affect the 2017-18 school year.
By collaborating with parents and other community partners, Seattle Public Schools can provide a voice for our students and their families. Through this process we hope to better align and leverage feedback from our families to meet school and District goals and to improve student outcomes.
