SPS Finance Presentation "Understanding the School Budget", January 25, 6:00pm-8:00pm
The Seattle Public Schools Finance team is excited to present an evening dedicated to understanding the school budget process. They'll share helpful information such as when the 2016-17 school planning dates occur, an overview of the budgeting process and how funding is determined and schools are staffed, and information regarding class sizes and the process for parent involvement. The event will be Monday, January 25 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the auditorium of the John Stanford Center for Educational Excellence (JSCEE). More information is available on the SPS website.
WSPTA Focus Day, Wednesday, February 3
If we ever hope to see full funding of basic education and address our other shared WSPTA legislative priorities, legislators need to see and hear from us. Please join the collective voices of PTA members from across the state on Wednesday, February 3 in Olympia. Rally on the steps at noon and meet with your legislators. Last year, PTA members from Seattle turned out to Focus Day in record numbers, and we had a big impact. Visit the event registration page to register to attend Focus Day 2016 and get more details.
Get involved. If you plan to attend and/or want to be involved in helping to rally others, contact QAE's PTSA's legislative/advocacy chair, Ian Stewart @ email@example.com, or Eden Mack, SCPTSA legislative chair at legchair@SCPTSA.org.
