West Seattle scene: Special delivery at Denny International Middle School

(WSB photo)

Special delivery at Denny International Middle School this afternoon – school supplies from a donation drive involving dozens of businesses around the city, organized by PEMCO Insurance. Denny is one of six schools in the city – the only one in West Seattle – receiving supplies from the drive dubbed “Supply Surge.” The six were chosen to benefit because they have the district’s highest populations of students experiencing homelessness.

    Denny might have one of the highest numbers in homeless youth but the love, support and care from teachers and administrations is changing lives.  But they can’t do it alone. Seattle Public Schools needs to fully fund schools all across the district, starting with underserved communities.Go dolphins!

      Where can we easily find the numbers for this: “Seattle Public Schools needs to fully fund schools all across the district”. Is there a place where we can easily see each the projected dollar amount needed for each individual school to run appropriately vs how much money the individual school actually receives?  I’d like to know what the shortfall exactly is for each school to be fully funded.  Does Denny have more of a shortfall in funding than Madison or maybe a middle school in the north end?  I started to read the 237 page “2018-19 Schools Funding Allocation” report and my eyes are glazing over. If anyone has a nice summary showing what the projected needed dollar amount is for each school vs what is actually received, I’d appreciate it.
