Committee Scope of Work


CFAC members concluded their 2018-19 work session in June by recommending to the school board that the next proposed bond include rebuilding Evergreen and Tyee high schools and Pacific Middle School. 

2019-20 Recommendations

Which schools should be in line for replacement in future bonds after Evergreen and Tyee high schools and Pacific Middle School? CFAC members will recommend an answer to that question after four committee meetings in 2019-20.

Highline has replaced many aging schools since voters passed bonds, but a number of aging facilities remain— listed by type—not in priority order:

  • Southern Heights Elementary School
  • Hilltop Elementary School
  • Seahurst Elementary School
  • Beverly Park Elementary School
  • Chinook Middle School
  • Cascade Middle School
  • Sylvester Middle School
  • Big Picture Schools
  • CHOICE Academy
  • New Start High School
  • Valley View Early Learning
  • Other district facilities

“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.

Time Commitment

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:

  1. November 13
  2. January 29
  3. March 25
  4. April 29

Enter your name in the lottery to refill empty committee seats by November 4. 

Capital Facilities Advisory Committee membership will be balanced by high school service area. A public drawing will be announced the week of November 4.
