Well-Resourced Schools Community Meetings

Summary: May and June community meetings to learn more about the proposed plan for creating a system of well-resourced schools.

During the May and June community meetings, senior leaders shared information about the proposed plan for creating a system of well-resourced schools that serve students in kindergarten through 5th grade.

A system of well-resourced elementary schools will create a new foundation of stability and consistency that our students and staff need to thrive. 

May and June Community Meetings Dates

To ensure SPS families have the greatest opportunity to take part, each meeting presented the same information in locations around our district.

The schedule for well-resourced schools staff meetings has been shared with SPS staff.

  • May 28, Roosevelt High School
  • May 30, Garfield High School
  • June 1, Chief Sealth International High School
  • Tuesday, June 4, 6 p.m., Zoom meeting

Note the May 25 meeting was rescheduled for May 30.

Each meeting recording is available on SPSTV YouTube channel The meetings were live streamed and and broadcast on television on Comcast 26 (standard-def) and 319 (hi-def), Wave 26 (standard-def) and 695 (hi-def), and Century Link 8008 (standard-def) and 8508 (hi-def).

Our goal is that all schools would include the elements that many of our families, staff, and students said were important during the Well-Resourced Schools Engagement Sessions last fall and earlier this spring.
