As we begin the holiday season, on behalf of the students, staff and family members of Federal Way High School and schools throughout the district, I want to express heartfelt thanks for the trust and confidence the community has again placed in the district.

While the 2012 capital levy vote has not yet been certified by the county’s elections bureau, the measure is currently passing with 60 percent approval.

We are already building on the work done through the past year to synthesize the information from the many conversations we’ve had, and to gather additional input and begin the design process leading to construction of a new Federal Way High School, installation of playgrounds at 19 elementary schools, and security cameras across the district.

Much work lies ahead of us. I look forward to working with the community — not only the school community, but the broader community, in this design process.

What an exciting opportunity for all of Federal Way. It takes all of us working together to create safe and inspiring schools, and a gem of a high school facility, that will meet the needs of our students in the immediate future, and for decades to come.

We’re not just building schools — we’re building community.

Superintendent Rob Neu, Federal Way Public Schools
