Technology Levy | November 3, 2020
In November 2020, Highline voters approved a two-year, $32.5-million technology levy by nearly 73 percent of the vote.
All students need access to technology to learn and be prepared for today's careers.
The emergency transition to distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated an urgent need for technology funding—for devices, connection, security, support and training.
Tech levy funds will provide the tools and support students need to prepare for today's careers. It also addresses the urgent need to support students and teachers with distance learning during the pandemic.
The Levy Will Fund:
- New devices
- Internet connections
- Upgraded cybersecurity
- Digital support and training for teachers and students in Highline
- Classroom technology
The levy will not increase taxes beyond the current rate. Taxpayers will see a reduction in their 2021 school district property taxes. See a complete property tax breakdown.
Need & Impact
All students need access to technology to learn and be prepared for today’s careers. Learn how the technology levy will increase digital equity and access to both distance learning and in-school instruction.

P.E. continues--just differently for now. Hilltop student Dionne Johnson demonstrates! During good days and bad days, mom Jessica is thankful for the device, hotspot, whiteboard, etc. If they go somewhere, they can bring the hotspot. Read their Distance Learning story.
