TT Minor International School for 2009-2010 School Year
School Board President Michael DeBell on May 23, 2009: “Bring me 300 students, and you can have TT Minor Elementary School.”
Superintendent Maria Goodloe-Johnson on May 20, 2009: “I believe in neighborhood schools, and every community deserves one.”
In response to Michael DeBell and Superintendent Goodloe-Johnson, advocates for TT Minor Elementary School are actively pursing an International Pre-K-5 International School Program focusing on the study of language, culture with a global perspective. Community and parent support are key considerations for the placement of these programs.
This must then be pursued in conjunction with the recruitment of 300 students, a portion of which should be in addition to students already
enrolled in Seattle Public Schools.
The plan would lead to immersion programs in Spanish, Japanese and English with an Advanced Learning Opportunity Program. TT Minor would
continue its partnerships with Seattle Music Partners, Pratt Fine Arts, Chess Club, Math Club, Language Clube, French Class and After School
Child Care and activities. Adding a Go Club, for instance, would be in keeping with cultural opportunities.
Parents and community members are invited to be a part of creating a culturally diverse community of engaged students learning advanced
skills in communication, international languages. and technology. Your help and talents will be needed to create a forum of parents,
community members, and leaders for planning and meeting with the District. Let’s make this happen.
