Saturday April 30 – The Mayor’s Education Summit Garfield High School Seattle, WA

The Mayor’s Education Summit

Mayor Edward B. Murray’s Education Summit builds on the City’s existing partnership with Seattle Public Schools to address the disparity in educational opportunity and outcomes that disproportionately impact students of color and those from lower-income families. Community voices and local leaders will share what’s working well in our schools, where more support is needed, and what strategies the City should support to help all students succeed in Seattle’s schools.

“Perhaps the greatest challenge we face in addressing the opportunity gap is the persistent disparities in our public schools,” said Mayor Murray. “This is not just the responsibility of the Seattle school district. All of us have a responsibility to support the success of these students. These children are our children and we must not fail them.”

In the weeks leading up to the summit, the City, Seattle schools, and several community agencies will co-host a series of Community Conversations all over the city to gather ideas and comments about various issues in education from Seattle’s families, students, and communities.

The Mayor’s Education Summit will also be an opportunity to report on the ideas and comments collected at the Community Conversations.

After this event, the Education Summit Advisory Group, comprised of education and community advocates, educators, and business and philanthropic leaders, will help develop recommendations and action items about how the City can best align its resources and efforts around making education more equitable.
