Fall 2018: Which Class Schedule Will Work Best?

Help us decide. A change in Washington graduation requirements will affect the high school class of 2021. We need your feedback now about which class schedule will be best for our high school students in Highline starting in Fall 2018. Learn about the options and take the survey.

Preparing Students for New Graduation Requirements

Washington state has updated requirements for high school graduation. The new Career- and College-Ready Graduation Requirements (also known as Core 24) increase the number of credits needed to graduate.


Starting with the class of 2021, Highline students will need to earn a minimum of 24 credits to graduate.


A committee of teachers, counselors, school administrators and central office staff is developing a plan to ensure that all high schools provide students with access to the learning opportunities they need to graduate and be successful in further education. In February, the committee will make recommendations to the superintendent.


Class Schedule Options and Survey
Learn about the recommended options, and at the end you will find a link to a short survey that will allow you to give input that will assist the committee in making a final recommendation to the superintendent.

Information Meeting & Opportunity for Input

We will be hosting an informational session on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 at 6:00 pm at Central Office (15675 Ambaum Blvd. SW Burien, WA) for anyone wanting more information regarding the new requirements, the options listed below, and/or the work of the committee, as well an opportunity to provide input on the two options.


Highline Public Schools is committed to ensuring our system adheres to the new state requirement of 24 credits and preparing every student for college, career, and citizenship.
