About Leslie Harris

As your District 6 School Board Director, I am committed to Transparency, Trust, and Equity.

We can do better for our kids, families and community. We need to work together as a board, staff, principals, teachers, parents and other jurisdictions:  State, City and other communities to meet each child’s needs and potential regardless of background, ethnicity and geographic location. 

Of particular interest to me are alternative education, program placement, mentorship opportunities and updating the SPS website to make it user friendly for all who wish to participate and assist. 

We need to replicate what is working and discontinue failing practices.  With my 30 years of professional experience as a litigation paralegal for victims and workers and in civil rights, researching fact and law, and local, state and national board work, I am committed to working with parents, community members and others to raise all tides and provide the opportunity for our children in this great and the fastest growing major city in the country is capable of.  

I am a native of West Seattle and now live in the Highland Park/Delridge neighborhood with my husband Michael of 30 years.  Our daughter Monica attends the University of Washington and was the beneficiary of a terrifically rigorous and creative education and mentoring at Pathfinder K-8 Alternative School.   Our foster attended Middle College High School then at South Seattle College.  We are most grateful for the dedication of all of the teachers and staff of the Seattle Public Schools.
