学校征税

There is a gap between what the state funds for K-12 education and what Seattle students need.

The money Seattle Public 学校 collects from local, voter-approved education levies stays in Seattle. We use these funds to provide the quality of education that our students and families expect, and to ensure our students have safe, welcoming schools that support student success.
