Six individuals have applied for the school board position vacated by Bernie Dorsey. Dorsey stepped down in June because he is moving out of state.
The open position represents District 4, which geographically encompasses Marvista, North Hill, Madrona, and Bow Lake elementary schools, Chinook Middle School, and Tyee High School, as well as other educational sites. Applicants must live within the boundaries of District 4.
The School Board will appoint one of the candidates to the open position at its August 4 meeting. The successful candidate will be sworn in on August 18.
The public will have the opportunity to meet the applicants at a Meet and Greet on Thursday, July 29 at 5:00-6:30 via Zoom.
Here is a look at the 2021-22 school calendar. These dates and breaks are reflected on our website calendar. The calendar will be final after HEA members vote on it in August. At this time, we do not anticipate changes.
As an extra measure of safety, we are offering free COVID-19 tests to Highline students in our summer school programs who have one or more COVID-19 symptoms and/or have been exposed to someone with a positive COVID-19 test.
To maintain the health and safety of our students, we are offering additional protocols beyond masking and social distancing which will allow safe participation in summer school and athletic programs. Starting July 12, we will offer weekly COVID-19 tests for students participating in summer school at Mount Rainier High School (MRHS) and students participating in summer athletics programming.
