The Puget Sound ESD Board of Directors has passed a resolution in support of the King County Promise. The resolution urges the King County Council to dedicate a significant portion of available Puget Sound Taxpayer Accountability Account funds to address unacceptable equity gaps in postsecondary readiness, access and completion via the King County Promise.
The King County Promise is a supports system that fills in the gaps by providing what students tell us they need to be successful:
- High School, College and Community Based Organization advisors for historically under-served students and young people who can use help to get back on track towards a degree/credential
- Alignment between K-12 and college systems to eliminate barriers and facing students, to ensure equitable access and success through long term system change
