Boundary changes are not easy. Our volunteer bond and boundary planning committee hosted a series of community meetings throughout Highline this month. They shared draft maps, listened to questions and concerns, and encouraged families and community members to give feedback online. The survey has been extended to April 20.
Join staff and committee members for a Boundary Design Session on Tuesday, April 17 at 6 p.m., at Central Office. See alternative districtwide boundary plans based on community suggestions. All are invited.
The Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) meets on Wednesday, April 25 at 6 p.m., at Central Office, to review community feedback and finalize a recommendation to the school board. The public is welcome to attend.
Boundary changes are necessary because the district is opening a fifth middle school and a new, larger elementary school in fall 2019. Five middle schools will feed into four high schools, requiring a new feeder pattern. The new schools will alleviate overcrowding and help meet the Legislature's direction to lower class size in kindergarten through third grade.
