Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy
Capital Levy Replacement to Be Submitted to Seattle Voters
The Feb. 12, 2019 election will include the six-year Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy. This levy is a replacement for the expiring Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy that was approved by voters in 2013. If approved, BEX V will enable continued construction of new school buildings, and new additions and major renovations to existing buildings. The BEX V Capital Levy would also fund security and safety upgrades, building system replacement or upgrades, and improvements to classroom and district technology.
In addition, the election will include a replacement for the district’s expiring operations levy. The Educational Programs & Operations Levy is a three-year levy that helps fund day-to-day educational programs that aren’t fully funded by the state.
