The 2022 bond is passing at an overwhelming 68.8 percent approval rate. Take a moment to savor this historic milestone by watching our "Thank You, Voters!" video featuring students saying "Thank you, Voters!" in three languages.
We built the school projects you approved in the 2016 bond to support more of our students with modern learning environments. In Fall 2019, we completed the new, larger Des Moines Elementary School at the Zenith Site and a fifth middle school—Glacier Middle School—in SeaTac. We renovated the Olympic Site as an interim school. We opened an all-new Highline High School in Fall 2021. New facilities and upgraded security features improved safety in every school. Design work for new schools at Evergreen, Tyee and Pacific will speed future bond progress. The School Board placed the next school bond on Highline election ballots for November 8, 2022.
Initial election returns are in. Proposition 1: Highline Schools Bond is passing! Read the letter from Superintendent Duran.
The estimated tax rate associated with Proposition 1, the Highline Schools Bond, was updated during the first week of October when King County updated its projections for property values. This does not affect the dollar amount homeowners will pay for the bond because voters approve a dollar amount, not a tax rate.
