Background
On February 8, Seattle voters have the chance to vote YES on Propositions 1 & 2. These ballot measures are not new taxes and replace the Seattle Public Schools Educational Programs & Operations (EP&O) Levy and the Buildings, Technology, and Academics/Athletics Levy V (BTA V). Find out more about Propositions 1 & 2 by visiting www.seattleschools.org/levies.  Building projects planned for Bryant elementary through the capital levy can be found at https://www.seattleschools.org/about/levy/2022-capital-levy/. Local funds cover critical basic education, daily operations, building renovations and technology needs. Levy revenue makes up 15% of Seattle Public School funding, capital and technology levy funds additional construction and technology costs.  Our schools depend on local funds and must pass on Feb 8th to be secured.
