Client: City of Seattle
Planned and facilitated a citywide education summit process and an advisory group to address the opportunity gap and disparities for public school students. Assisted in planning 19 community meetings and an online survey that led up to a citywide summit event, and prepared a summary and analysis of the themes emerging from the input of the nearly 1,000 participants. The Advisory Group developed a set of 18 recommendations for the Mayor. (2015 – 2016)
Results: Mayor Ed Murray accepted the Advisory Group’s recommendations in Nov. 2016 and in early 2017 expects to release an action plan on the next steps to implement them. His 2017 budget proposal included four programs the Advisory Group recommended.
