**ACTION ALERT!! The Washington State Legislature is in session as of 1/8/2024! 

Please see below for what support is needed NOW for reaching out to the Washington State Legislature to request more funding for public schools.

Schools across Washington State, including Seattle Public Schools, face growing structural budget deficits that threaten to cause huge cuts and even school closures. Seattle's projected deficit for next year is $105 million. Our state legislature can prevent this by taking action to fully fund public education during this legislative session. 

Here’s what you can do now:

  1. Contact your legislators

  • First, identify your legislators (link) and find their contact info

  • Read the one-pager with messaging you can use or link to here.

  • Or use this form email that you can personalize

  1. Spread the word to other parents, caregivers, educators, and community members. Encourage them to sign up to receive our updates and follow us on Instagram 

  1. Share your input with your school board directors, urging them advocate to the legislature for more school funding

About All Together for Seattle SchoolsWe are a group of parents, educators, and community members who support K-12 public education. Amply funded public schools benefit all of us, because educating today’s students is an investment in our state’s collective future.

We are a grassroots network of public school parents, mostly in Seattle. A core group of volunteers has been mobilizing since late October, and we have a big lift ahead of us over the next few months and beyond. Our main priority is to educate and mobilize public school families so that they will be heard by district and state decision-makers.
