Review the 2023-24 Highline Public Schools Budget
Attend a public hearing to learn about next year’s budget and give your feedback
Burien, Wash. – The Highline School Board will hold a public hearing to review the budget for the 2023-2024 academic year. The Highline community is welcome to learn about next year’s budget and give their feedback in a public hearing.
Wednesday, June 7
Central Office Board Room

Like school districts across the region, Highline faces a significant budget shortfall in the coming years due to declining enrollment, rising costs and the end of ESSER funds (federal COVID-relief dollars.)
Highline will not have to make significant cuts in the coming year, thanks to remaining ESSER funds. However, as enrollment continues to decline, they face a larger budget gap each year for the next few years.
Highline’s new strategic plan will be the guide for budget reductions.
