Please be advised we are closing all schools and the Family Center to allow all staff to participate in the Highline Equity Symposium.
It is almost time for school to start! Here are nine things to do as you get ready for the first day of school.
School supply list is now available.
You are invited to meet the new principals, Dr. Lopez and Mr. Sgambelluri for a Principals Meet & Greet on August 20 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.

The Board of Directors will hold a public budget hearing on Wednesday, June 19 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
With the close of the legislative session, we now have a clearer budget picture for 2019-20. State lawmakers made some modifications to the McCleary funding plan that help us. However, enrollment is still declining, and that means a decline in state funding.
Our strategic plan names ambitious academic goals, including a goal for at least 19 out of 20 students to graduate prepared to choose their future. Why aim so high? Because our students are worth it, and they are capable of it.
This summer, North Hill Elementary and White Center Heights Elementary schools each will get an additional permanent building housing new classrooms and restrooms. Early site work began in late May.
On Wednesday, May 15 the Highline School Board approved the adoption of new social studies and math curricula. Students will begin using the new instructional materials in fall 2019.
Due to snow days, the schedule for the last week of school has changed.
To give families what they need to support their children, Highline will launch a new mobile app and online family portal in fall 2019. Highline’s current mobile app will discontinue on June 30.
In a place where so many teachers are rockstars, it's hard to pick out just a few. We want you to meet some of our teachers who earned extra star status this year from someone who especially admires their commitment to know every student by name, strength and need.
Thank you to all who participated in this conversation. We invite everyone to explore the priorities and ideas provided about our upcoming high school schedule change.
We invite staff, students and community members to submit proposals to present sessions at our 2019 Equity Symposium.
We want all students to graduate bilingual and biliterate. What does that mean? And why is it important? Mastering more than one language is a tremendous advantage in today’s world.
The Superintendent's Family Action Committee (FAC) has been active for 6 years and is highly regarded as a committee that brings the parent/family voice to a variety of district strategies and practices.
Technology plays a huge role in the lives of our students–and we believe students should have equitable opportunities to access technology. But our job as educators goes way beyond making sure students master the hardware and software of today's technology.
More locks are coming soon. Voters funded the 2016 school bond, which set aside money for improved security, including safer interior and exterior door locks. Here is an updated timeline and list of schools.
Curious counselors and teachers from Highline High School checked out the Olympic Interim site in February. The renovation is almost done. Here are photos so you can preview. Watch for an Open House announcement!
We want students to receive all scheduled time for instruction, so we will not apply for a waiver for the February snow days.
