Vote Yes on School Levies

Two critically important school levies are on the February 9 Ballot. Pathfinder PTSA endorses the renewal of these levies and urges everyone to vote YES.

  1. The Operations Levy provides 25% of the Seattle Public Schools operating budget.  Without these funds – $758.3 million over three years – our schools’ budgets would be devastated.
  2. The Capital Levy (BTA IV) will provide much needed funding to expand school capacity and support classroom technology, academics and athletics.

Be thinking about project ideas!
