Why Do We Need a Local Levy? Let Us Tell You

Why Do We Need a Local Levy? Let Us Tell You

Local levy dollars provide critical funding for education programs so all Highline students have equitable opportunities to succeed in school.

Renewal of the Highline Education Levy is on the November 2 ballot.

The levy renews support for ongoing expenses over the next four years. It pays for basics not fully funded by the state, including:

  • Support and training for teachers and instructional assistants so they can provide students with high-quality instruction
  • Academic support to keep students on track for the next grade level
  • Counselors and social workers who support students' social-emotional needs
  • Equitable course offerings for high school students, including Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and other college credit courses
  • Nearly all school nurses and many other staff, including teachers, instructional assistants and librarians.

The levy is not a new tax—it renews an expiring levy.
