    Mercer Facilities Improvements Updates

    While the Mercer community is diverse, active and doing great things to advance learning at the school, some major improvements are needed on the buildings and infrastructure.

    The Facility Improvements Committee needs your help to advocate for Mercer in the coming year!

    We communicate regularly with SPS facilities staff and are requesting updates about levy timelines so we can coordinate our efforts. Please check back for updates on SPS meetings to attend and other ways to provide input.

    If you'd like to find out about the next meeting or more about the issues, please contact Or visit our minutes page to read the committee notes.

    Thank you for your support!

    The SPS long-range capital levy plan includes two levies, Building Excellence (BEX) Opens a New Window.and Buildings, Technology and Academics (BTA). Opens a New Window.The levy schedule puts either a BEX or BTA levy before voters every three years on an alternating schedule.

    BEX is for replacing, modernizing or making major renovations to district buildings, infrastructure and technology. The last BEX levy was approved in 2013. BTA is for small renovations, major maintenance, and improvement projects and was last approved in 2010. The next levy is the BTA scheduled for 2016. The committee is currently focusing efforts on the 2016 BTA levy.
