Ballots must be mailed by Tuesday to count in the February 10 election. Vote YES for on the school levy and bond to ensure strong schools and a thriving community.

The Seattle Times writes:

HIGHLINE Public Schools voters should embrace the chance to give the district the elbow room needed to continue innovative reforms to better serve students… This district is a standout for its academic approaches… Both [levy and bond] are necessary for the district’s success.

In an earlier editorial, the Seattle Times wrote:

HIGHLINE Public Schools is a district bursting at the seams. District voters should not miss a second chance to replace aging schools and prepare for a stream of new students expected to swell the district’s rolls over the next decade. Read the full editorial [3]

Take a look at this KING5 News story [4] to see why we need to replace our two oldest schools and build new ones for a growing student population.

Here’s where to find details on the bond [6] and levy [7].

Mail your ballot today or drop it in a ballot drop box [8] by Tuesday, February 10.
