• 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.
