From the District: Survey for adjustments to 2017-18 schedule

Seattle Public Schools and Seattle Education Association are partnering to increase students’ access to core content, improve instruction and accelerate student achievement.

As part of the Collective Bargaining Agreement process, SEA and SPS agreed to add 20 minutes to the school day in 2017-18 and provide one hour per week of teacher collaboration time. As the district plans to make this schedule adjustment, we want to hear from families and stakeholders on how the additional time should be added and how and when to schedule the collaboration time.

You may provide feedback in one of two ways:

  1. Complete the online survey.
  2. Complete and turn in a paper-based survey at your child’s school

Review how your preferences would change your child’s schedule.

We appreciate your time.
