In February 2019, Seattle voters will be asked to renew two levies to fund Seattle Public Schools — a Capital Levy and an Operations Levy.
Planning is currently underway for the Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy. The six-year levy would replace the expiring Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy approved by voters in 2013. BEX V would fund capital improvements including projects to modernize or replace aging buildings with modern, operationally efficient educational facilities. BEX V would also fund technology for student learning, district systems, and infrastructure and security.
The district is also planning for the three-year Operations Levy, which would replace the current Operations Levy approved by Seattle voters in 2016. This levy helps fund day-to-day operations and pays for critical programs and services that are not fully funded by the state.
We want your input
In April, five regional community meetings will be held to share the planning process and possible projects. District staff members will share information, listen to and collect feedback, and answer questions.
