Community Engagement

Seattle Public Schools Community Engagement

As a district, we value listening to and learning from our community. We seek ways to make sure all voices can be heard, especially those that might be underrepresented in our community. 

We will use culturally responsive ways to engage so we build trusting relationships and empower the voices of those who can help us meet these needs.

Well-resourced Schools Community Engagement

We are excited to create a united vision for well-resourced schools. You are invited to join us in a community conversation. Your feedback will inform future district planning. 

Starting in August, we will host community meetings to talk with students, families, staff, and community partners. We are developing a shared understanding of what resources, programs, services, and learning experiences make up a well-resourced school.

Well-resourced Schools Community Survey

We also have created an online survey to be sure we are reaching our community members who may not have attended one of our meetings. The survey will close Friday, Sept. 29.

Feedback collected on this survey will help Seattle Public Schools better understand the SPS community vision of what a well-resourced school looks like. Your feedback will help guide future district planning.

Guiding the SPS Well-resourced Schools Vision 

SPS well-resourced school conversations will be guided by Board Policy 0010, Instructional Philosophy and Board Policy 0030, Ensuring Educational and Racial Equity. These policies demonstrate the Seattle Public Schools commitment that students will be supported and affirmed in their learning, with multiple pathways to success, in school environments where they feel seen, heard, and welcomed in all spaces.

Ensuring Educational and Racial Equity

Seattle Public Schools has made eight commitments to the success of every student in each of our schools.
