Community meeting on Seattle Public Schools levies at Ballard High on Wednesday

Voters can get more information about Seattle Public Schools’ upcoming Operations Levy and the Buildings, Technology, Academics/Athletics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy, both of which will be on the ballot next February, at a community meeting this Wednesday at Ballard High School. The meeting is from 6:30-8 p.m. in the lunchroom. Interpreters in Spanish and Chinese will be provided.

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 school buildings.
