PSCCN is deeply grateful to the members of the Refinement Phase, a group of 70+ staff, students and representatives from across King County's educational and community support system who have been engaged in the Refinement Phase of King County Promise since November 2019.
We hope you are enjoying a bit of rest and have a chance to reset before the 2020-21 school year officially begins!
This summer, PSCCN is reflecting on our work, seeking feedback from our partners (thank you to all who completed our recent survey!), and mapping our plan for 2020-21.

We are excited to share brand new College Knowledge: Student Lessons and Family Workshops, developed collaboratively by the College and Career Leadership Institute, Community Center for Education Results, UW GEAR UP Achievers, and UW Dream Project.
We here at PSCCN wish our district and college partners the best, as we all work kick off this new academic year as best we can. We know under normal circumstances this is a stressful time of year for everyone, much more so now while navigating a shift to remote learning, and also juggling the social, political, and personal challenges that this year has brought us. We hope that we are able to embody the same resolve you have displayed over the past several months in order to better support you over this upcoming year.
