In 2015, the Alliance for Education will celebrate 20 years of commitment to a singular mission: ensuring every child in Seattle Public Schools is prepared for success in college, career, and life. We play a unique role as a catalyst for change, convener of community leadership, and a conduit for directing private resources – both dollars and expertise – toward critical needs in Seattle Public Schools. Since 1995, we have raised over 150 million dollars for Seattle Public Schools.We work in close partnership with Seattle Public Schools’ leadership to effect systemic change that will improve academic outcomes, address the opportunity gap, and ensure the college/career readiness of all students.
