Dear QAE Community:
For families who attended our 2/4 PTSA General Membership meeting, the 2/12 Kids Co Child Care meeting, or have been following news related to Facilities on our website and/or the Rocket Reader newsletter, we had the first of what will be many meetings with the Seattle Public Schools Capital Planning team yesterday, 2/17.
The Director of Capital Projects and Planning and a team of seven other Capital Projects and Facilities members toured QAE and sat down with us to discuss the plans outlined in the BEX IV funded QAE Addition. We were asked thoughtful questions from the SPS team and given a chance to walk through our facilities needs and how we can best support students and staff and the community with this capital project.
Here are the key points:
Adding additional space that supports our school, preserves childcare, and reflects our learning environment is an important focus for us. Support from our parent community will be critical to meeting facility needs and supporting families who rely on childcare. SPS and the Capital Planning Department expressed an openness to consider QAE-driven options.
The QAE staff, along with the QAE PTSA, is working together to make sure that the needs of everyone in our community are heard. If you would like to send questions, comments, or volunteer for our facilities related efforts, please do so here.
We will continue to keep our QAE families informed during this process.
