In November 2011, Seattle voters approved by 64 percent a $231.6 million levy to provide education support services in order to improve academic achievement in public schools. This is the fourth Families & Education Levy passed in the City of Seattle.
The implementation and evaluation plan sets out the criteria, methodology and required program outcomes for the Levy investment areas.
