Annual Report

The community is invited to track Highline’s graduation rates and progress on other goals using an interactive annual report. This year's report documents Highline’s progress towards the district’s  strategic goals for the 2022-23 school year, the final year of the strategic plan initially adopted in 2013 and updated in 2018.

The report gives users an opportunity to view results by strategic goal, school, and year, as well as student group. Scroll over numbers and graphs to read pop-ups with more information.

Strategic Plan

Last summer, the Highline School Board unanimously approved four goals to anchor Highline’s new strategic plan. The new plan is guiding the district’s work for the next three years. This school year, Highline staff are developing measures to monitor progress toward the new goals. The district’s next annual report will show progress made on those new goals. Learn more about the strategic plan on Highine’s website.
