School Based Award: 2020-2021 School Year

The Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) is requesting plans from Seattle public elementary and K-8, middle, and high schools seeking a School-Based Investment from the City of Seattle Families, Education, Preschool and Promise (FEPP) Levy approved by voters in November 2018. 

FEPP School-Based Investments will be awarded through a competitive request for investment (RFI) process and managed by the City of Seattle Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL). To be eligible for funding, schools must have submitted an Intent to Apply (ITA) application in June 2019 and must submit a complete RFI application by December 13, 2019 that describes in detail the outcomes to be achieved, the means and methods to achieve results, and proposed community partners. If funds remain following the 2019 RFI process, a second call for applicants will be issued in 2020 for School Year (SY) 2021-22 implementation.  The following are the annual range amounts per grade level for the school-based investment RFI funding awards. Annual award size will be contingent upon services provided and students served. In addition to the annual award, schools will have the opportunity to earn additional funds based on performance towards outcome targets.

Information Sessions

The Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL) is holding information sessions related to RFI application.  

The first information session is a video tutorial intended as a walk through the overall RFI document, process and procedure, and technical compliance. 

Additionally, there are two information sessions designed to support and provide assistance with grade-level specific RFI overall support. Although not required, we encourage principals or the staff member that will be responsible for filling out the application, attend one of these sessions to understand what you will need to do to have a fully completed application that we will evaluate.
