|Highline's School Funding|
Thank you voters for renewing Highline's three-year levy in the February 2015 election.
A levy is a locally-approved tax based on property values.
Levies make up 21% of the budget for teaching students and operating schools above the costs covered by the state.
Levy dollars pay for basic day-to-day operations of schools not fully funded by the state, such as:
- Teachers and support staff
- Textbooks, technology, and learning materials
- Bus transportation
- Building maintenance
- Security staff
- Special education
- Teacher training
- Athletics and activities
