ELECTION RESULTS 1: Highline School Levy passing with over 57% approval

The first round of election results are in for the Feb. 13 Special Election, and it looks like the Highline School District’s Replacement of Expiring Educational Programs and Operation Levy is passing.

“I am grateful to voters for their support of our students and schools. Local funding for our schools is critical,” said Superintendent Susan Enfield. “It allows us to provide the quality education our community expects for our children, which goes beyond the minimum funded by the state.”

The levy bridges the gap between what the state funds and the education Highline provides students. The approved levy pays for critical needs, including teachers, staff, school nurses, safety and security officers, counselors, social workers, special education, Camp Waskowitz and athletics.

Initial returns show the Levy with a 57.67% approval:

Highline School District No. 401 Proposition No. 1 Replacement of Expiring Educational Programs and Operation Levy
