Yes for Highline!

We are a committee of concerned citizens and parents from White Center, Burien, Normandy Park, Seatac, and Des Moines who support our local school funding measures by promoting the Highline Public Schools bonds and levies.

We know great schools make safe and thriving communities. Our schools depend on local funding for 21% of the dollars it takes to operate schools with strong programs that serve the children of our community well.

Capital improvement bonds fund the replacement of our aging schools and the building of new schools to address our growing student population.

Yes for Highline! is actively planning for the future. Our community must invest in our schools in order for them to continue offering the services they currently provide.

We are a citizen organization made up of parents, community members, business owners, neighbors and others who want strong schools in Highline. We work together to support passage of school construction bonds and school operations levies.

Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) Report to the Board of Directors

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.

  • This is a great place to be from. I'm very proud to be from Highline High School. I graduated from here in 1979 and I think it might have been a pretty tired building then.

  • Our children in this community deserve better. Not only is this a critical time in terms of getting the facilities that we need, but it sends such a strong message to our children: that we believe in them, that we are investing in them, that we will continue to expect much of them, but give them support that is commensurate with that level of expectation.
