Tonight there is a candidate forum with mayoral, City Council, City Attorney and School Board Candidates.
Eckstein Middle School
3003 NE 75th Street
7:00 – 8:00 City Council, City Attorney, Mayoral Candidates — Moderated, timed, questions and brief answers, 2.5 – 3.00 minute closing statements.
8:00 – 9:00 City of Seattle School Board Candidates — Moderated, timed, questions and brief answers. Answers to written questions from the audience.Clearly, a longer time for School Board Candidates so it should be interesting to see what they might get asked since the new boundaries for the SAP have come out.
Also, on Wednesday, the 14th, the National Council on Teacher Quality is issuing a report titled, "Human Capital in SPS: Rethinking How to Attract, Develop, and Retain Teachers."
I was invited to come to the media portion of this release so I will be attending that in the afternoon.
In the evening there is a community forum.
Seattle University Campus - Campion Tower Ballroom
914 E. Jefferson Street
6:30- 8 p.m. (doors open at 5:30)
Speakers will be Kate Walsh, President of NCTQ, Patrick D'Amelio, President and CEO of the Alliance for Education as well as reps from SPS and SEA.
I cannot attend the evening session as I am going to the Ballard SAP boundaries meeting. If you go, please let us know about it.
