In his blog, State Rep and SPS parent Reuven Carlyle shared the horrible plan by the Seattle Public Schools administration to tax PTA contributions to schools by 3.3%. He points out that this affects the hard work and funds raised by PTAs to already supplement what the school district has failed to provide.
The other big a ha for me in what he shared is that SPS already has the highest overhead of any district in the state.
SO – what can you do (since I’m all about action):
- Email/Call the Superintendent to Just Say No to the Parent Tax – firstname.lastname@example.org – (206) 252-0167
- Email/call our School board members: – you can find links to each of them and their information here: http://www.seattleschools.org/area/board/index.dxml
Tweet, blog and facebook people about this. This can’t happen – and you can keep it from happening.
Thanks for your help!
