NOTE to Lawton Families, these meetings are where SPS takes community feedback about schools and buildings and the plans for addressing projected enrollment data. See the preliminary plan here. NOW is the time to voice your opinion and learn about building renovations and long term plans for schools in the district (for ex. a high school at Lincoln).
Seattle Public Schools Seeks Input for Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy Project Options (From SPS)
Seattle Public Schools will host three community meetings on April 3, 5 and 10, to share information, and ask for feedback about options for possible building construction projects to be included in the Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy package. Once final, this list of construction projects will be in front of Seattle voters in February 2013.
The community meetings will be held:
Tuesday, April 3, 6:30-8:00pm at Eckstein Middle School
Thursday, April 5, 6:30-8:00pm at Denny International Middle School
Tuesday, April 10, 6:30-8:00pm at Mercer Middle School
Each meeting will include presentations by Capital Projects and Planning staff members, followed by a question and answer period with community attendees. Comments from the community will be collected, recorded, reviewed, considered and included in considering the Building Excellence IV Capital Levy projects package.
The public can also send their comments and feedback anytime to firstname.lastname@example.org
The capital levy is part of Seattle Public Schools’ long-range plan to upgrade and renovate aging school facilities on a planned and predictable timetable. BEX III was approved by Seattle voters in 2007 and included the major renovation of Chief Sealth International High School, Hamilton International Middle School, Ingraham High School, Nathan Hale High School and Rainier Beach High School, as well as the new school construction of South Shore Pre k-8 and Denny International Middle School.
