Seattle Public Schools is submitting two school levies to Seattle voters for renewal in the Special Election on February 9, 2016:
Operations Levy and the Buildings
The Operations Levy replaces the expiring operations levy and provides about 25 percent of funding for day-to-day educational programs and services not fully funded by the state of Washington. The operations levy pays for a portion of teacher, instructional assistant and support staff salaries, as well as textbooks, classroom supplies, safety and building security, bilingual and special educational services, professional development and training, bus transportation, student activities such as athletics, music, arts, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities.
Technology and Academics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy
The BTA IV Capital Levy replaces the expiring BTA III Capital Levy and renews our commitment to providing safe, quality schools.
