    Buildings, Technology, and Academics IV (BTA IV) Capital Levy

    Levy amount: $475.3 million
    Year approved by Seattle voters: 2016
    Replaced: Buildings, Technology, and Academics III (BTA III) Capital Levy

    This six-year capital levy supports the district’s long-range plans to upgrade and renovate aging school facilities, and address enrollment growth. These levy funds will be used to:

    • Upgrade and reopen three school buildings, and construct an addition at one school to address capacity needs created by growing enrollment.
    • Support building projects including renovations, major maintenance, and health and safety improvements.
    • Provide classroom technology equipment and instructional support to enhance student learning.
    • Provide for academics projects to meet the educational requirements and needs of students.
    • Improve athletic fields.

    Major Projects

    Other BTA IV funded building projects are usually completed during the summer months to avoid disrupting student learning. See this year's summer projects.



    The BEX/BTA Capital Programs Oversight Committee is a citizen oversight committee required by the School Board. The focus of the committee is to assure that the BEX and BTA programs supports academic achievement in the schools, as well as program revenues, expenditures, and planning for future BEX and BTA levies or bonds.
