Black History Month is an opportunity to celebrate Black people's accomplishments and leadership, learn and reframe history with accurate facts and from a variety of perspectives, and celebrate the richness that Black people contributed and continue to contribute to our community and the nation.
While Black History is nationally recognized in the month of February, in Highline we are committed to working directly with students on topics of race and identity throughout the year.
From grades K through12, students learn key ideas from a variety of perspectives to understand why and how race and identity play a role in shaping our society. This instruction is intended to prepare students to live and work with others in a diverse world. It acknowledges the fact and impact of racism in our nation. It does not advance any particular ideology or political perspective.
The curriculum is developed in collaboration with a community advisory council made up of students, families, and community members.
