    Building Excellence (BEX) Capital Levies

    Every six years, the district asks Seattle voters to consider renewing the Building Excellence (BEX) Capital Levy. BEX levies enable us to continue the construction of new school buildings, new additions, and major renovations to existing buildings. Technology and infrastructure improvements are also funded by BEX.

    Thanks to Seattle voters, BEX Capital Levies were approved in 1995, 2001, 2007, 2013, and 2019. The six-year BEX Capital Levies alternate with Buildings, Technology, and Academics/Athletics Capital (BTA) Levies on a three-year cycle. Read more about BTA levies.

    How are project plans developed? Capital Projects School Design Advisory Team (SDAT) is a group of community members (unique to each project) who work with the district capital staff and project architects in the critical early design stages of each major construction project. The SDAT meets for two to three months to help develop the overall project vision, key concepts and strategies that guide the design team in developing the project plans.
