For the first time, the PTSA at Chief Sealth Int’l High School is going mobile with its general meeting.

It will be held at the High Point Neighborhood House .

Principal Aida Fraser-Hammer will be reviewing the school budget.

It’s a process the community has requested more information about.

As an initial proposal from the school district – to its final version approved by the teaching staff - 

the  Chief Sealth annual budget is a work-in-progress throughout the year.

Principal Aida Fraser-Hammer will outline the process of bringing the school budget to completion.

She will also detail the budget for the upcoming school year.

 Bring your questions!

 

Marty McLaren, Seattle School Board Director, will be discussing topics of interest to the Chief Sealth community.

She will begin with the State Court’s decision to “fully” fund education in Washington. 

What funds have been freed up and define her understanding of this process.

If there is an eventual windfall from the State, does have the District have a plan for its use?
