This week the school board adopted a new set of school boundaries within Highline Public Schools. The plan was developed by the community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC). The revised boundaries will take effect fall 2019 when our two new schools open.
The approved boundary maps and school feeder pattern reflect the revisions recommended by the committee after considering public feedback and suggestions.
Families affected by these changes will receive notification by mail in October.
My child has an in-district transfer into a school outside my neighborhood. Will my student be able to stay in her current school or need to reapply for the transfer?
If your child currently has an in-district transfer, the transfer is approved through the highest grade for that school and you will not need to reapply for a transfer. Transfers will not be revoked based on boundary changes.
Here are Frequently Asked Questions about the proposed boundary changes. Thank you for your involvement and support as we adjust school boundaries and build new schools! Have a question that hasn't been answered yet? Email us.
