Reminder: Families and Education Levy Arts Workshop, Nov. 15

Reminder! We’re partnering with the Seattle Office for Education to host a brown bag workshop offering an overview of the 2011 Families and Education Levy and outlining how arts organizations can get involved. The $232 million, seven-year levy passed in the Nov. 8 election. The workshop is noon to 2 p.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15, at Seattle Center.

The city’s Office for Education administers levy dollars. It awards contracts based on competitive bids and measures results. The intent is to offer many opportunities for collaboration and partnership in the interest of dramatically improving academic results for students in Seattle public schools. Learn about the levy, its outcome-based framework and specific investment areas.

RSVP by noon, Monday, Nov. 14 to or (206) 684-7171. There is no fee, however advance registration is requested.
