Advocacy is central to every local PTA unit’s mission. Our PTAs see the needs and work to fill them. The role of Seattle Council PTSA is to represent and support the 80+ PTA units in the District, and that means helping to organize our collective voices to advocate for the well-being of all children. We ask that every individual PTA unit in Seattle:Have an Advocacy/Legislative chair on their board of directors
Participate in State PTA legislative events (see WSPTA Advocacy Page)
Contact SCPTSA Legislative Chair Eden Mack at legchair@SCPTSA.org or 206-240-6648 with any questions, comments or information about advocacy efforts of your PTA.
Seattle Schools is projecting a shortfall of $74million for the 2017-18 school year. Unless the Legislature acts swiftly in the 2017 legislative session to both extend the levy cliff and fully fund staff compensation for the 2017-18 school year, our District will be going through the process of eliminating staff positions and other important budget items. The process for cuts is starting now as schools need to have initial budgets for next year in April.
