SUMMER BUILDING IMPROVEMENTS
This summer our school will benefit from the Buildings, Technology and Academics III (BTA III) Capital Levy. Seattle voters approved this levy in 2010. It pays for many needed small renovations and major maintenance projects in our school buildings. At our school, contractors will be restoring the building façade.
Information about this summer’s BTA projects will be posted soon on the BTA website: http://bta.seattleschools.org. If you have questions about the work at our school, please use the “Contact Us” link on the website or call Project Manager Earl Edwards, 206-252-0702.
