60 Volunteers Enter Lottery for Bond Planning Committee
Congratulations to the nine newest members of our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) selected by lottery on November 5.
Thank you to all 60 community members who entered their names as volunteers in our annual lottery to fill vacant seats on our bond planning committee.
The real winners in this community-led process are... our students!
Highline's Chief Operations Officer Scott Logan expressed his gratitude: "The fact that more than 60 amazing people in Highline are willing to help plan for the replacement of aging facilities across our district speaks volumes about our community's desire to invest in our most precious resource—our students!"
Congratulations to the following new CFAC members:
- Melinda Gorog
- Ellen Tester
- David Thompson
- Jawahir Ali
- Martha Rivera Stanley
- Anna Livingston
- Annmarie Falaniko
- Belyou Dagnew
- Ayan Jeite
The names of all 60 alternates are posted, as drawn by the service area in which they live. We will use the list to contact people if a lottery seat opens in their service area early in the meeting schedule.
Lottery alternates—as well as all Highline staff, families and community members—are invited to attend and observe CFAC meetings. The next meeting is Wednesday, November 13, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the district Central Office, 15675 Ambaum Blvd SW in Burien.
The committee's charge this year is to complete Community Recommendations for Future Facilities, including prioritizing facilities built prior to 2000.
This year's committee will look further out than the next bond, for which 2018-19 CFAC members developed a recommendation. That recommendation includes replacing Evergreen and Tyee high schools and Pacific Middle School. Committee members will work together to prioritize other aging facilities for bonds after the next one.
