    Seattle Public Schools is recruiting new members for the Superintendent's Reopening Plan Task Force.

    The deadline for applications for task force is October 7, 2020, at 9 a.m.

    The superintendent is forming a task force for the Reopening Plan and Remote Learning model, per Substitute Resolution 2020/21-4.
