On Wednesday, June 28, the school board adopted a new set of school boundaries within Highline Public Schools. The plan was developed by the community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). The revised boundaries will take effect fall 2019.
We are busy building the school projects you approved in the 2016 bond to give students room to learn—thank you, voters! Increased space will lower elementary class sizes. New facilities and upgraded security features will improve safety in every school. Additional design work will speed future bond progress. We are on target to complete every project on time and within budget.
It takes a village! And the village leaders came out to celebrate with Highline Public Schools as district officials, architects and project staff broke ground for a new Des Moines Elementary School at Zenith Park on June 8, 2018.
The community-led bond and boundary planning committee for Highline Public Schools presented a recommended set of boundary maps and a list of additional considerations at the June 6, 2018 school board meeting.
Thanks to a construction camera on site, you can check on the progress of our new middle school every day!
The new Highline High School (HHS) will reopen fall 2021 with its grand main entrance reconstructed using the original brick and terra cotta. Community members learned about this and more at the May 17 Ask-the-Architect meeting.
