    School Levies Community Meetings

    Planning is underway for two school funding levies to be submitted to Seattle voters in February 2019. Seattle Public Schools requests input and feedback on possible projects. 

    The 2019 Operations Levy is a renewal of the expiring Operations Levy; it provides critical day-to-day funding to support students and educational programs not fully funded by the state.

    The 2019 Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy is a renewal of the expiring BEX IV Capital Levy. It will include projects to improve earthquake safety and other security needs, add more space to meet growing enrollment needs, replace or repair school buildings and systems, and fund major preventive maintenance throughout the school district. BEX V would also fund technology for student learning, district systems, and infrastructure and security.

    Provide Input and Feedback

    Regional meetings were held in April to share information, receive input, listen to comments and answer questions.

    Additional meetings will be scheduled in the fall.

    Comments and questions are welcome via email or mail:
