We are grateful to Highline voters for passing the first bond in ten years. This bond will give students room to learn in our growing district. We will have the classroom space we need to lower elementary class sizes, and students will be safer in every school in the district. We are committed to responsible bond spending. We will continue our track record completing every project on time and on budget.
Eight community members will keep a close eye on the progress and spending on Highline Public Schools bond projects. These community members agreed to serve as the Capital Projects Oversight Committee to ensure accountability on school construction projects.
We are holding a lottery to refill open positions on the Capital Facilities Advisory Committee. Come in person at 4:30 p.m. June 7 or watch it live on Facebook. (Thank you to the 49 community members who responded by volunteering their time for this important committee.)
Highline Public Schools is looking for community members to help complete the district’s long-range facilities plan and assist with planning boundary adjustments. If that sounds like you, submit your name for the Highline Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). New members of CFAC will be selected by lottery on June 7. Enter by June 6.
Past students and former employees are invited to take one last walk through part of the old Glacier High School at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 17. The buildings will be demolished later this summer to make way for a new middle school opening September 2019. RSVP or share a memory.
In late April or early May, three design review committees began to provide feedback and review the work of the project architects. Each committee will also host periodic community meetings to invite input and answer questions. See list of committee members.
