You’re Invited: Seattle Schools Levies 2019 Community Meetings

Dear families,

Planning is underway for two levies to be submitted to Seattle voters in February 2019 and Seattle Public Schools requests your input and feedback on possible projects. The Operations Levy is a renewal of the expiring Operations Levy; it provides approximately 20 percent of the district’s general fund annual budget and supports educational programs not fully funded by the state.

The 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.

District staff members will present information, listen to and collect your input and feedback, and answer questions. Please join us at one of the following meetings; interpreters will be available by request.

All meetings will take place from 6:30-8:15 p.m.

Monday, April 2:        Aki Kurose Middle School lunchroom, 3928 South Graham Street

Tuesday, April 3:        Madison Middle School lunchroom, 3429-45th Ave SW
