Highline’s 2018-2019 year-end financial report (F196) has been submitted to OSPI. Our strategy of budgeting conservatively is paying off. Our total ending fund balance for last year is less than we anticipated because we over-estimated grant revenue that did not materialize. We are taking steps to increase the accuracy of our projections as we move forward.
