Vote YES for Critical Safety Upgrades to Seattle Schools

Seattle Public Schools School District Proposition #2 photo Seattle is one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the country and many schools are struggling to keep up with surging enrollments. The Board of Directors of Seattle School District No. 1 is seeking approval of a capital levy to fund the Excellence Program V to increase school capacity and implement important earthquake safety projects, renovations, and major maintenance. If passed, Proposition 2 would build space for 1,908 more students and eliminate 76 portables from schools. In addition, the capital levy would replace or modernize eight of the district's oldest schools, including Rainier Beach High School and Northgate Elementary. This important 6-year proposal would replace an expiring levy at the rate of $0.90 per $1,000 assessed home value in 2020 and decline to $0.56 in 2025, costing the owner of a median $728,000 home $655 per year.

Our students deserve better than overcrowded and outdated schools. Vote YES on the Seattle School District's Proposition No. 2! Read more...
