In February 2019, Seattle voters were asked to renew two levies to fund Seattle Public Schools — an operations levy and a capital levy — and they passed! For information about the Levies, visit the Seattle School District Levies Page. Watch for updates on the Facebook page and in the newsletter, The Raven’s Call, for how you can advocate for school funding to help our students, teachers and schools.
