March 17, 2017
Mayor Ed Murray has described the preschool program as the most important initiative he will ever undertake in office.
“The goal is universal pre-K, so no matter your economic status or circumstance, children have access to high-quality early education,” Murray said in announcing the expansion.
The program is run, in cooperation with but independent of the Seattle School District, by the city’s Department of Education and Early Learning (DEEL).
