Seattle Public Schools is hosting a community meeting Tuesday, March 31, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at Fairmount Park Elementary (School lunchroom) 3800 SW Findlay Street to share information about the next Operations Levy and our Buildings, Technology, Academics/Athletics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy on February 2016 Seattle ballot.
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.
Information on the priorities and levy projections can be found here. Staff members will present information, ask for comments and answer questions.
