According to Seattle Times and Seattle PI articles this morning (2 Seattle school measures appear to have passed and School measures likely to pass) the Seattle School District Bond and Levy will pass, with numbers not too different than the last time.
In 2001, the building levy passed by 71%, and the operating levy passed by 72%.
As of midnight last night, the building levy is passing by 67%, and the operating levy is passing by 70%.
I'm very glad both measures appear to be passing, and I'd encourage everyone who has concerns about the bond to keep talking about it and keep advocating for increased accountability, improved communication and, perhaps, shifting of some of the dollars to address the valid concerns that have been raised.
The three people I met with at the district office about BEX III were knowledgeable and open to hearing opposing viewpoints. Contact the following people with your opinions:
