Leaders from the state’s Educational Service Districts (ESDs) joined legislators, school staff and student representatives on September 22, for a news conference urging broader support and additional funding for school safety and student mental health services.
On August 28, 2019, the Martin Luther King County Council passed historic legislation investing $318 million to improve educational outcomes for children and youth over the next 16 years. The investment, funded through voter-approved Sound Transit 3 proceeds, supports King County children and youth across the entire age spectrum, from early learning through postsecondary completion.
Of the $318 million investment in the King County Puget Sound Taxpayer Accountability Account (PSTAA):
- $153.8 million will support the development of early learning facilities
- $29.6 million will support community-based organizations working with students in the K–12 grades
- $112.4 million will go to the King County Promise, which provides advising support for underserved high school and college students to get them to and through college
- $22.6 million will be reserved for administration and evaluation
Thanks to HB 1216, each educational service district in Washington State will house a Regional School Safety Center. PSESD is moving into its fourth year with our Safety Cooperative and the second year with our Threat Assessment Cooperative. Leveraged with funding from OSPI, we are now positioned to provide safety services throughout the region.
Puget Sound Educational Service District (PSESD) is seeking a diverse group of representatives who are committed to racial equity, to consider becoming members of the PSESD Board of Directors. The PSESD End, or mission, is Success for Each Child and Eliminate the Opportunity Gap by Leading With Racial Equity.
