Levies 2016 Community Meetings

District to host five community meetings on Levies 2016
Posted on 06/11/2015

Seattle Public Schools is hosting five community meetings in September to share information about our upcoming Operations Levy and our Buildings, Technology, Academics/Athletics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy which will be submitted to Seattle voters in February 2016. Staff members will present information, ask for comments and answer questions.

The Operations Levy renews every three years, represents nearly 25% of the District’s annual general fund budget and supports basic educational programs not fully funded by the state.

The Buildings, Technology and Academics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy renews every six years and funds hundreds of small renovations and major maintenance projects, as well as technology, academic and athletic initiatives at our school buildings.

Staff members will present information, ask for comments and answer questions. All meetings: 6:30 p.m.-8:00 P.M.
