    Seismic Report

    The safety of our students and staff is our top priority. Earthquake Safety/Seismic improvements projects have been completed at Seattle Public Schools’ buildings to meet applicable city codes at the time of construction.

    Seattle Public Schools will continue to implement earthquake safety improvements/seismic retrofits to all of our school buildings on a predictable schedule that prioritizes the need for seismic improvements based on the most recent engineering studies. Our mission is to ensure a safe teaching and learning environment for students and staff. Seattle Public Schools Building Excellence (BEX) and Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA) capital levies, approved by Seattle voters, provide funding for earthquake safety improvement/seismic retrofits for our school buildings.

    The City of Seattle has produced a list of Unreinforced Concrete Masonry (URM) buildings. This PDF adobe PDF icon lists those buildings owned by Seattle Public Schools and their seismic status.
