Office of African American Male Achievement at SPS

The Alliance works in partnership with Seattle Public Schools and Seattle’s philanthropic community to identify strategies and innovations to invest in that advance racial equity and educational justice. Beginning in June 2019, the Alliance led the creation of a $3.6 million fund to support the founding of Seattle Public Schools’ Office of African American Male Achievement.

Seattle Teacher Residency

The Seattle Teacher Residency recruits, trains and retains highly qualified and diverse educators to teach in classrooms where they can work with students most impacted by inequity. The STR program has trained nearly 250 teachers who began their careers in Seattle Public Schools classrooms.

Right Now Needs Fund

The Right Now Needs Fund is a one-of-a- kind program that works at the individual school level to address the immediate basic needs of students and families across all 106 Seattle Public Schools. The fund ensures students fully participate in classroom activities by covering the costs of warm clothing, meals, technology access, and housing that are not included in individual school budgets, but necessary to help students thrive.

At the heart of our work is a commitment to create a public school system that is equitable and excellent for all students.
