Are there policies or partnerships that could help students get a better education and meet needs for affordable, stable housing in the region?
The Where We Live and Where We Learn forum will highlight innovative housing and education collaborations that benefit families and children.
The event will be held 2-4:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5, at Seattle City Hall in the Bertha Knight Landes Room.
The case for interconnected housing and education policies and programs is especially compelling for Washington state policymakers this year. The McCleary decision, which requires that the Washington State Legislature enact reforms to meet its mandate to amply fund public K-12 education, will impact the funding landscape for all statewide programs and services.
The forum will cover:
- successes and challenges in existing partnerships between housing authorities, schools, and others
- future partnerships between education and affordable housing developers
- strategies to better support these partnerships through policy work
PSRC is co-hosting the forum in partnership with the Housing Development Consortium of Seattle and King County and the Puget Sound Educational Service District.
