Hello, I'm a parent of an Eckstein Middle School student (Seattle Public Schools), and a member of the Washington State PTA (WSPTA). Seattle Public Schools District faces a $40 million-dollar shortfall next school year. For my student, this will mean bigger class sizes, staff layoffs, and other cuts. Our district is also underfunded by tens of millions of dollars for special education services and is struggling to meet state requirements for K-3 class sizes.
