Seattle Public Schools Superintendent José Banda on Nov. 1 gave the 2012 State of the District, reporting on Seattle Public Schools successes and challenges, and the District’s strategies for moving forward.
“The State of the District is strong,” Banda said. “We have work to do to make sure all of our students are succeeding, but I am pleased to see our schools improving and growth occurring both in test scores and enrollment.”
The State of the District included a PowerPoint presentation, and highlights of the District Scorecard and individual School Reports.
