Two-tier Start Time Update

Two-tier Start Time Update
Posted on 05/12/2017
An update on the potential investment from the city and the shift to two tiered start times. The Mayor’s recommendation of using Families and Education (FEL) Levy funding still needs approval from the FEL Oversight Committee and City Council. While the committee believes investing in two-tiers is the right thing to do for Seattle students, they did not approve use of FEL funds. Our request for one-time funds is still under consideration, but they are working to identify another source of city funding. In order to prepare for next year, which includes developing the new route schedules, ordering the buses, and communicating with families and community partners, we need final approval from the City by June 15. We will be sharing this information with families in the coming days.
