    Seattle Public Schools Initiatives and Core Commitments

    Seattle Public Schools is leading the way to prepare students for college, career and life. Our district outperforms the state’s academic average and often perform better than similar districts nationwide. Many of our students are ready for success in life and are well prepared for college and careers that require a strong mastery of content, innovation and creativity.

    However, while we are making significant progress, our promise to some has not been fulfilled. Seattle Public Schools, despite making promising progress continues to have unacceptable achievement gaps between white students and students of color.

    With our Formula for Success, we are learning what works and collaborating across the district with teachers, staff, community partners to eliminate opportunity gaps and achieve our goal that every student graduates ready for college and career success in Seattle.

    Our work to Eliminate Opportunity Gaps and with MTSS: Multi-Tiered Systems of Support are key to this formula.
