Join JoLynn Berge, Seattle Public Schools (SPS) Assistant Superintendent of Business and Finance, to learn about the 2022 SPS Levies. Seattle voters will be asked to consider two education funding measures in the Feb 2022 election. These measures are education levies that continue funding to help support student success by creating a safe, equitable learning environment. Schools First will also join the meeting to share how you can support the campaign.
This meeting will be recorded. When the recording is uploaded to Facebook, this blog post will be updated with the link. For faster updates, please Like the FB page.
