    Student and Community Workforce Agreement Task Force

    Seattle Public Schools is seeking community and staff participation in the Student and Community Workforce Agreement (SCWA) Task Force.

    This task force will review existing and potential new collaboration models and practices that align with both the mission of Seattle Public Schools and workforce opportunities of the skilled labor sectors in Seattle.

    At conclusion, the task force will make recommendations to ensure that the district makes fiscally responsible public capital investments that support a high quality of construction while advancing social equity, increasing workforce diversity, creating family wage opportunities related to construction careers, and supporting the district’s goals for career and technical education.

    The task force will seek stakeholder feedback and community engagement and will review lessons learned from best practice examples of community workforce agreements in both school districts and other public entities in the Seattle region that employ community workforce agreements, including priority hire programs and project labor agreements (PLAs). Cost and financial implications of such agreements will be considered, as well as community impact and workforce development opportunities.

    Application deadline was extended until Friday, September 6, 5 p.m.
