You could be one of 40 parents, staff and residents working together to identify which schools Highline rebuilds in the future – submit your name to the lottery for open seats on the community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC).
Here’s more from the district:
After the new Highline High School is constructed, CFAC members have recommended rebuilding Evergreen and Tyee high schools and Pacific Middle School in the next bond. But which schools should be in line for replacement in future bonds after that? That is the question for CFAC members to answer in 2019-20.
CFAC Co-chair Rose Clark says that in her many years serving on community boards and committees, CFAC has been the best experience by far. “District staff is like our employee: we tell them what data we want to see, and they get it for us. We study the data and make a recommendation to the school board,” said Clark.
While Highline has replaced many aging schools since voters passed a bond in 2002, a number of aging schools remain.
“We believe it is critical to have community members from all over the district participate in prioritizing the list of schools to be replaced or improved,” said Highline Chief Operations Officer Scott Logan.
CFAC Meeting Schedule
The time commitment this school year for CFAC members is to participate in four evening committee meetings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Highline Public Schools’ central office:
- November 13
- January 29
- March 25
- April 29
Enter your name in the lottery to refill empty seats by October 28.
Capital Facilities Advisory Committee membership will be balanced by high school service area. A public drawing will be announced.
