Wraparound Services

Investment Summary

Wraparound Support investments help eliminate non-academic and socioeconomic barriers to learning for Seattle students. By addressing students' non-academic and socioeconomic challenges, students will be able to attend school and engage in meaningful learning in the classroom as well as other academic and enrichment activities offered at their school.

Services in this investment area include:

Family Support Services: Case management and other in-school wraparound services to students who are chronically absent and not yet meeting grade level learning standards 

Homelessness and Housing Support Services: Funding assistance to help unstably housed students and families and prevent further homelessness 

Sports and Transportation Service: Coaching stipends for Middle School sports and transportation services from K-12 levy-funded activities that occur outside of the school day.

Investment Details
