Stand for Children Endorses the City of Seattle Families and Education Levy

June 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm Leave a comment

This spring, Stand for Children leaders unanimously voted to endorse the City of Seattle Families & Education Levy. Stand for Children strongly supports efforts to ensure all students have an equitable opportunity to receive the tools they need to successfully graduate High School and to prepare them for a successful future. We strongly support the levy’s overarching goal that: “All students in Seattle will graduate college/career ready.”

During tough economic times and while the State of Washington continues to drastically cut local district budgets – particularly around family and student support programs – it is vital that we come together as a city and as constituents to support the early learning, college readiness and family engagement components which are at the forefront of programs supported by the levy.

This fall, Stand for Children volunteers and supporters will actively campaign for the successful passage of this levy. To find out more on how you can support Stand for Children in our efforts to make all schools high quality schools for all students, please contact us via email.
