District 4 Board Vacancy

The Highline School Board voted last night to delay their appointment of a director to fill the term of Bernie Dorsey, who stepped down from the school board in June.

The board was scheduled to vote on an appointment of a director representing District 4 at its August 4 meeting, but they agreed to delay the vote in order to seek more information from the candidates. Five residents of District 4 applied for the open position and were interviewed by the board in a public meeting on June 29.

The appointment will be voted on in an upcoming board meeting. 


Are you interested in being a member of the Highline School Board? Director District 4 is now vacant. Anyone who lives in District 4 and is a registered voter in Washington State is eligible to fill this seat. Check out the duties of the Board.

Director District 4 term began in December 2019, and is next up for election in 2023. Due to the resignation, the School Board will be appointing someone to fill the Director 4 seat for the remainder of the current term.
