At their January meeting, members of Highline’s community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) reviewed enrollment information, heard bond project updates and planned for building tours.
We built the school projects you approved in the 2016 bond to support more of our students with modern learning environments. With approval of the 2022 bond, we will rebuild three more aging schools and make more critical repairs and capital improvements districtwide. Thank you for investing in building and maintaining our schools. We invite you to follow our progress from planning to construction and stay informed.
The new Highline High School design landed another award: Outstanding Project Award. The school design, by Bassetti Architects, is featured in the Fall 2022 Learning by Design magazine's Educational Facilities Design Awards.
Superintendent Ivan Duran asked for a round of applause at the last meeting of our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) to celebrate the committee’s planning work and recommendations in previous years that laid the foundation for the approval of the 2022 bond in November. Read a summary of the November CFAC meeting.
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.
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.
