Families, community members, and staff are encouraged to attend upcoming community meetings about Highline Public Schoolsâ€™ proposed levy and bond measures on the Feb. 10 ballot. Renewal of an Educational Programs and Operations Levy would pay for basics such as teachers, books, buses and other essentials not fully funded by the state. The bond would replace the districtâ€™s two oldest schools, build new schools to accommodate growing enrollment and lower class sizes, and make critical repairs and technology upgrades district-wide. For details on the meetings, visitÂ http://highlineschools.org/communitymeetings Meeting participants will:
- Learn the facts about the proposed levy and bond measures.
- Learn how the bond proposal was modified based on community input.
