The Puget Sound region is about to receive a historic investment to support underserved students in education, from birth through postsecondary. King, Pierce and Snohomish counties will receive approximately $518 million dollars, collectively over the next 15 years.  The King County Council will soon decide how to spend the funds, and PSCCN is one of the lead groups organizing K-12, higher education, and community partners around a collaborative, cross- systems proposal, promoting college and career supports for students in low income King County high schools.
