School Board candidates on arts education

We partnered with the Seattle Arts Commission and ArtsEd Washington to develop and send a short questionnaire about arts education to each of the eight candidates running for four seats on the Seattle School Board.

We asked the candidates about their arts experiences growing up, what role arts education can play in closing the achievement/opportunity gap and how they would help shape school board policy for arts education. We urge you to read their full responses online.

The Seattle School Board represents seven geographical regions, known as Districts, within the city of Seattle. All Seattle voters get to vote for the four open board positions in the Nov. 8 general election.
