The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife started Salmon in the Classroom in 1991, then dropped it as a budget line item in 2012. A coalition of educators, agency staff members, and environmental advocates formed the Salmon Education Alliance to keep the program going in Seattle/King County. In 2016, representatives of Seattle Public Utilities and the Fauntleroy and Carkeek watersheds chose to focus on administering the program for public and private schools within the City of Seattle. The following annual reports summarize the program since the 2013-14 school year and the transition to Salmon in the Schools –Seattle.
