Seattle Public Schools to discontinue Traffic Education on August 31
Starting in the fall, the District will no longer offer traffic education. During lean budget times, the District can no longer afford to offer this program, which is not a part of our core academic mission.
Costs to maintain and insure a car fleet, as well as staffing costs, are not fully covered by student fees. In addition, the District is no longer able to offer competitive prices to families, so we are seeing dwindling enrollment in traffic education.
However, Seattle Public Schools will still offer summer traffic education this year, before ending the program on Aug. 31, 2012. If families would like to sign up for summer traffic education, please visit online: http://bit.ly/TrafficEd
