The Highline Renewal Levy (Proposition 1) is endorsed by:
Vice President, Highline School Board "Stable, predictable funding for our schools will enable the district to focus on its mission and goals to provide an excellent education for our children. And that’s what we want from our schools!"
Burien City Council "As the product of public schools, I know the critical role Highline Public Schools has to set students on a path to success and enable them to give back to their community. We as a community need to invest in Highline Public Schools."
State Representative, 33rd Legislative District “Passage of this levy will provide equitable access to critical programs for our students. It funds counselors and social workers who support students’ social-emotional wellbeing. It pays for nurses so students with medical needs can continue learning in school. It supports advanced courses and other challenging academic programs so students are ready to succeed after graduation. I fully support renewing this levy!”
Mayor, City of Des Moines "It is my pleasure to endorse the Highline School District Levy. These funds are essential to cover expenses that state educational funding does not. The areas of support that this funding provides are essential to student learning and success."
Councilmember, King County Council “Our entire community benefits from good public schools. This replacement levy is critical to ensure the next generation of students get the same high quality education I received when I attended Gregory Heights Elementary. Please vote yes.”
State Representative, 34th Legislative District “As our students head back to school after months of virtual learning and an unpredictable future, the least we can do is ensure each of them has access to critical academic and social-emotional support. Please vote an enthusiastic YES to renew the education levy.”

Every student deserves access to high quality instruction and academic support. This levy commits resources straight to the children of our community. By renewing this levy we are following through with our promise that every student graduates prepared for the future they choose! "

Sylvester Middle School PTSA
"As parents in the Highline School District, we know that renewing this levy is more important now more than ever. Passing the levy means all of our students will have access to counselors and support staff they so badly need after the past year. Not renewing this levy will only bring more challenges to our students who are already dealing with so much. We're proud to endorse the Highline levy, and we hope you will join us by voting yes in November."
Sarah Moore & Nancy Kick
Co-Chairs, ACLU Burien People Power "All children living in the United States have the right to a free publicly funded education. Our Constitution requires that all young people be given equal educational opportunity no matter what their race, ethnic background, religion, or sex, or whether they are rich or poor, citizen or non-citizen. We believe that education is a key ingredient to eliminating inequality and reducing poverty. Education is one of the most critical and meaningful investments we can make in our communities to strengthen an informed populous and bring about prosperity for all community members."
Voter, Parent, Community Member, Alumni & Former Employee "Students are key to all our futures. All students have the right to a high quality education which is only possible by the passage of this levy. Others supported me and my students to attend Highline Schools, therefore, it is my responsibility to continue to support those currently attending."
City Councilmember, Des Moines City Council "As Community Leader, the father of two Highline Students as well as the husband of a Highline Substitute Teacher/Engaged Highline Volunteer (PTSA and Booster Club) I know that Health and Safety, Academic and Social-Emotional Support and High Quality Instruction are extremely important and that by supporting the levy renewal I am ensuring that our students will continue receive the support and assistance they need."

"The Chamber is proud to support Highline Public Schools and the levy renewal. Ensuring our children have the resources and tools they need to be successful will progress the economic development of our community. Supporting our schools is always a good investment for the business community as we work towards strengthening the workforce of the future."
