Levy Planning

Planning Underway for Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy

Seattle Public Schools has begun planning for the Building Excellence V (BEX V) Capital Levy to be submitted to Seattle voters on the Feb. 12, 2019, special election ballot. Capital levies are part of Seattle Public Schools’ long-range plan to upgrade and renovate aging school facilities on a planned and predictable schedule.

The BEX V Capital Levy would enable continued construction of new school buildings, and new additions and major renovations to existing buildings. The expiring Building Excellence IV (BEX IV)  Capital Levy funded new construction or major modernization at 17 schools. These projects have either been completed or will be in the next few years. The BEX V Capital Levy would also fund security and safety upgrades, building system replacement or upgrades, and improvements to classroom technology.
