Can’t make it to the special levies and budget presentation at View Ridge Elementary on Monday, January 14 at 8:00am? School Superintendent Denise Juneau and other district leaders will be presenting on the upcoming February 2019 levies at three Levy Informational Meetings in January 2019. All meetings are from 7-8 p.m.
Each meeting will include a short presentation, starting at 7:10 p.m. about what’s on the Educational Programs and Operations Levy (EP&O), and the Building Excellence V (BEXV) Capital Levy. People will also have time to ask questions about the ballot propositions, the process, and what’s included for each school in the district’s levy request.
- Tuesday, Jan. 8 – John Rogers Elementary School Cafeteria, 4030 NE 109th Street
- Thursday, Jan. 10 – Montlake Elementary School Gymnasium, 2409 22nd Ave. E.
- Tuesday, Jan. 22 – Rainier Beach High School Cafeteria, 8815 Seward Pk. Ave. S.
The EP&O and BEXV levies replace existing levies and are not a new tax to Seattle property owners. All funds stay in Seattle to support our students and schools and pay for safety and security upgrades at every school, critical day-to-day operations, educator salaries, technology supports, and will fund eight major school construction projects across the district. These projects will increase the number of classrooms, reduce portables, and balance class size.
