PTSA Equity Project Seattle is hosting a series of community meetings around the city in February and March 2018. The goal is to gather feedback from parents and stakeholders about how best to address resource disparities related to parent fundraising in Seattle Public Schools (dates and locations below).
The group wants to create a future where all Seattle Public Schools students can succeed. They believe that one important step toward that future is creating a system whereby Seattle Public School PTAs contribute a portion of their proceeds to an Equity Fund. This fund would then be distributed to schools where the opportunity gap is widest. Learn More
