Our mission: Preparing our students with skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and citizenship.
Welcome to the Puget Sound
Skills Center (PSSC). We pride ourselves on serving all students in our 18 college and
career preparation programs offered at PSSC. Our mission is to prepare each of
our attending students for their success in college, a meaningful career and
global citizenship. Our dedicated teaching and support staff strongly believe
in and support the PSSC mission by knowing each student by name, strength and
interest. We have strong relationships with our local businesses,
community groups, civic organizations and parents of our students to ensure we
are taking a collective approach for student success into and out of their
selected PSSC program focus. Please feel free to stop by and visit with us to
see how our teachers, support staff and administration team foster student’s
growth in preparing for their future endeavors.
A school construction bond to repair or replace deteriorating schools and ease overcrowding will go before voters on February 10, 2015. After seeking community input following the November election, the school board voted December 17 to place a new bond measure on the February ballot.
Voters will have an opportunity to renew their investment in Highline students and teachers in the next election. A three-year Educational Programs and Operations Levy renewal is one of two school funding measures on the February 10 ballot.
Results from a recent online survey show staff, families, and the community are generally supportive of the bond package that was put to voters on last November's ballot. The bond fell less than one percentage point short of the 60 percent needed for passage.
Teachers across the district are receiving extra support in their classrooms this month thanks to more than $65,000 in grants from the Highline Schools Foundation. The Foundation awarded 89 Excel Grants to teachers and programs across the district in December.
We face two critical issues as a school district: aging buildings and crowded schools. A bond measure that addresses these issues was on the November ballot. Learn more about the election here. Help us build for tomorrow, today.
Highline Public Schools has a new video that illustrates our bold goals for students. The animated five-minute video follows a family on Highline's "path to success," telling the story without a single word.
