PSP hosting 5 meetings on the 2016 Operations and Capital Levy

Seattle Public Schools to host five community meetings on the February 2016 Operations Levy and BTA IV Capital Levy

Seattle Public Schools is hosting five community meetings 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 about 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 many 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.
