Proposed Director District Boundary Changes 2022
Boundary changes do not affect schools.
After the U.S. Census is completed every 10 years, school districts must review the boundaries of their board of director districts to ensure equitable geographic representation. The area served by Highline Public Schools is divided into five geographic districts, each with one board seat.
Candidates for school board must run for the seat of the director district they live in. Each position is elected by all voters in the district. All directors represent the entire school district in their board actions.
Director district boundaries are not related to school attendance boundaries. This process will not change any neighborhood school boundaries.
The district has contracted with FLO Analytics to support the redistricting process.
Please revisit this page for updates to the process.
Give Feedback on Draft Maps
Working with a consulting firm, we have developed three draft maps and are seeking feedback from the community. Your feedback will help develop a final recommended map that will be presented to the School Board for a vote. Review the three draft boundaries maps below.
- School Board Work Session and Public Hearing on May 18 from 4:30 to 5:45 p.m. The first 45 minutes will be a presentation of the maps. From 5:15-5:45pm, the Board will hold a public hearing on the draft maps at the Central Office Board Room located at 15675 Ambaum Blvd SW, Burien, WA. The meeting will also be live-streamed on our website. If you would like to address the School Board at the public hearing, please call 206-631-3070 by 12:00 p.m. on the day of the meeting. Individuals may also sign up to speak at the hearing. Speakers are allotted four minutes each to speak. Download meeting presentation.
