    Seattle Council PTSA Recognized as a Premier Partner

    Seattle Public Schools recognized the Seattle Council PTSA during the Wed., April 4, school board meeting for the council's service and partnership to support and engage school communities, students and families. In addition, the Seattle Council PTSA and the Somali Mothers took the opportunity to recognize Superintendent Larry Nyland for his years of service.

    Since 1972, the council has supported, empowered and engaged Seattle Public Schools' families and communities. The nonprofit association is comprised of families, students, educators, administrators, business leaders and community leaders. The council offers trainings to parents, after-school enrichment programs for youth and numerous other school supports.

    Many of the district's most student-centered transformational work happens in school communities through PTSAs and PTA boards and membership. The council has redirected their focus back to their roots of being an engagement and advocacy organization. 

    Sebrena Burr, SCPTSA president, took the opportunity to thank Superintendent Nyland, Dr. Brent Jones and other district staff for championing equity work in the district and the partnership to support school communities and students.

    It is a partnership to help "kids in classrooms because with this group of children that we are educating, our future is very bright. We need to give them the tools and resources not just to survive but to soar in life," said Ms. Burr.

    We are grateful for our partnership with SCPTSA and the work they are doing to support, empower and engage Seattle Public Schools' families and communities to advocate for students.
