A dedicated and sincere forty member citizens’ committee met for almost a year to study the issues in order to make a recommendation to the Highline Public Schools to help alleviate the problems with capacity, security and modernization. It was a great learning experience for all of us. The district staff served as a resource for the committee. Questions were researched and answered.
All of the meetings helped us reach consensus on many issues regarding our priorities for new buildings and for security and modernization. Those issues are addressed in the recommendations. However, the committee (CFAC) developed a longer range plan to address so many issues that can only be funded with Capital Funds, which are raised by bonds.
There is a four step process outlined in the proposal. Please take the time to read it. The only proposal which will make it to the election, and that is step one. We hope our communities will come together to support this very important step to provide safe and secure rooms and schools for our teachers and students.
