Mayor Jenny A. Durkan announces an expansion of the Seattle Promise program to address impacts on students during COVID-19, a new partnership with the University of Washington, and extended tuition and program support at Seattle Colleges. Funds will support college preparation and persistence for recent public high school graduates participating in the Seattle Promise program, as well as bolster Promise scholar pathways to college completion through a new partnership with the University of Washington and extended tuition and program supports at the Seattle Colleges. The new federal funding and partnerships will address educational equity toward three key program outcomes: student preparation for college-level coursework, retention in college, and completion of a certificate, credential, or degree or transfer to a four-year institution.

Mayor Jenny A. Durkan, City of Seattle

Dwane Chappelle, Department of Education and Early Learning, City of Seattle
