Yesterday afternoon the City Council gave their initial approval to the proposed renewal of the Families and Education Levy. The Special Committee on Educational Achievement for Seattle Schoolchildren, composed of all nine Councilmembers, unanimously approved the $231 million proposal, indicating their strong support for the Levy and its goal of ensuring all students in Seattle will graduate from high school ready for college or a career.
