Technology Levy | November 3, 2020

In November, Highline voters will be asked to approve a two-year, $32.5-million technology levy.

All students need access to technology to learn and be prepared for today's careers. 

The emergency transition to distance learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated an urgent need for technology funding—for devices, connection, security, support and training.  

If passed, the tech levy will provide the tools and support students need to prepare for today's careers. It also addresses the urgent need to support students and teachers with distance learning during the pandemic.

The Proposed Levy Will Fund:

  • New devicesĀ 
  • Internet connectionsĀ 
  • Upgraded cybersecurity
  • Digital support and training for teachers and students in Highline
  • Interactive classroom presentation screens
