Select Committee on Families, Education, Pre-School and Promise Levy

Select Committee on Families, Education, Pre-School and Promise Levy

The Families, Education, Pre-School and Promise Levy is the City of Seattle's levy to support equitable education so all of our learners, from birth to graduation, can reach their full potential. With the Families and Education Levy (2011) and the Seattle Pre-School Levy (2014), both expiring in 2018, the City of Seattle looks to renew our commitments and investments to support quality learning that is centered on closing the opportunity gap and expanding access to learning for Seattle's children and their families.

Purpose

The Committee will consider the Executive’s proposal for a ballot measure to fund the renewal of the Families and Education Levy and the Seattle Preschool Program Levy. The Committee will:

  1. Review current and future educational needs
  2. Consider the Executive’s proposal, including the size and scope of the Levy
  3. Deliberate and make a final decision on whether to send a Levy proposal to the ballot for consideration by Seattle voters
