Meeting with Susan Enfield

Today I met with Seattle Public Schools Superintendent Susan Enfield to discuss issues of mutual concern and touch base on our joint town hall next Tuesday, June 21st at South Shore School. One of our topics of conversation was the College Bound Scholarship. Seattle Public Schools currently has 281 8th graders who are eligible for tuition to a Washington public college or university, as long as they sign up by June 30th, maintain a 2.0 grade point average, and don’t commit a felony during their high school career. Students have to be current participants in the federal free and reduced lunch program in order to qualify, and they must enroll in the scholarship program by the 8th grade to be eligible.

Even if you don’t have a child who qualifies, you probably know someone who does. Please share the above information and the following link as widely as possible. Students may apply for the College Bound Scholarship online at http://hecb.wa.gov/collegebound

Here are some things you can do to help us meet the goal:

Do you use Facebook? Click the “F” at the bottom of this post to share this information with all your friends. Use Twitter? Click the white bird to tweet this info.

No social media? No problem. Just copy this post into an email and send it to your friends and family – even those without eligible kids. The more people know about this opportunity, the more students we can help.

Word of mouth is powerful too! If you meet someone who might be eligible, just tell them to search online for College Bound Success or call 1-888-535-0747.

Time is running out. The deadline to sign up is June 30th. Will you help us make sure every student in Seattle has a chance to succeed? Sign up here!
