2016-2017 BELL TIME PROPOSAL: COMMUNITY FEEDBACK DUE NOW
The Bell Times Task Force is reviewing public input on whether to either keep the bell time schedule the same, reshuffle elementary, middle & high school bell times, or extend the high school day by adding an optional seventh hour beginning with the 2016-2017 school year.  The Neighbor to Neighbor program was created to facilitate community engagement and is being led by parents from our schools. The feedback gathered from every family in these discussions will play an important role in the District’s recommendations and decision making processes on Bell Time changes moving forward. Three (3) Options are being reviewed and only one will be recommended for the Superintendent for implementation.

Please join Emily Giaquinta & Genevieve Carlson on Tuesday, April 7 from 6:30-7:30PM at Schmitz Park Elementary (5000 Spokane Street) for a brief presentation, Q&A session and to complete the family survey. You can also view information and submit the survey online at neighbortoneighbor.www.seattleschools.org.  Contact: Emily Giaquinta - legislative@schmitzparkpta.org.
