Highline's proposed budget for the 2017-18 school is now posted online. The budget will be introduced to the Highline School Board at its July 26 meeting. You are invited to comment on the budget at a public hearing at 5:00 p.m. immediately before the school board meeting.
The hometown heroes of the last school bond are rolling up their sleeves again. Representatives from all four high school service areas in Highline Public Schools met June 14 to tackle boundary changes and continue planning for the future.
The Class of 2017 inspires us daily by demonstrating perseverance, empathy and excellence. The two seniors profiled here are examples of the outstanding young adults graduating from Highline ready for college, career and citizenship.
We in Highline pride ourselves on the diversity of our community, believing that the rich cultures and languages of our students and families are not only an asset, but also an integral part of our shared identity and experience. As the Highline Community, we share in the commitment to engage in respectful, productive, and bipartisan civic engagement and communication in a safe and inclusive space.
Highline is committed to ensuring that our students feel safe, welcomed and respected at school. This means we will continue to intervene when we see or hear offensive, bigoted words and actions. We are committed to our promise of knowing each of our students by name, strength and need, as well as protecting, advocating for and valuing our students equally no matter their race, language or ethnicity. To support this work, our School Board recently passed the attached Resolution in support of serving each of our students in an equitable and inclusive environment.
Highline students are brilliant, beautiful and brimming with promise and we recognize that they need our protection, advocacy and reassurance now more than ever.
