History

 

S3B is a brainchild of parents, teachers, and community members that came together at a meeting in April 2010 at a private home, with a shared goal of working proactively, rather than reactively, to advance quality public education opportunities for all children in Seattle.

 

Mission

 

to advance quality public education opportunities for all children in Seattle. 

 

Vision  

 

The S3B will model a responsive Board that has as its fundamental goal to adopt polices that are in the genuine best interests of the children who attend Seattle Public Schools. 

 

It is our hope that the S3B can become a strong grass-roots organization that will effectively apply pressure on the Seattle Public Schools Directors to

    • "do the right thing" for our children and community, and put the interests of children and teachers ahead of the private business interests;
    • take up their proper role as leaders, through writing policy, rather than followers, of a Superintendent and whatever agend s/he may bring to the job;
    • guide the Superitendent - whoever that may be at any particular time - to make choices that fulfill Board policy, are lawful and moral, and that serve the best interests of children rather than the best interests of the political and economic elite of our city;
    • -when the occasion arises - choose a candidate for the Superintendent's office  who has a track record of pursuing geninune best practices in public education, rather than a privatization agenda.
