The BEX IV Levy whose extensive list of impacts will include the complete replacement of Arbor Heights Elementary School is the subject of a community meeting set for Sept. 24 at Madison Middle School.
In a press release today the school district described the purpose and details of the meeting and two others:
"Seattle Public Schools will host three community meetings – on Sept. 20, 24 and 27 – to share information and ask for comments about building construction projects to be included in the Building Excellence IV (BEX IV) Capital Levy package. Once approved by the School Board, this list of construction projects will be submitted to Seattle voters in February 2013.
The community meetings will be held:

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 capital levy is part of Seattle Public Schools’ long-range plan to replace and modernize 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."
