Community Representatives (11 total)

We sought representation on this committee from many areas of the community. Community representatives must be a parent, guardian, and/or family member of a current Highline student. To ensure the committee reflects the diverse population of Highline Public Schools, we recruited family members who represent those who traditionally have been less involved in schools, including diversity in:

  • Ethnicity, language and race
  • Gender and sexual orientation
  • Socio-economic status
  • Type of family (single parent, foster care, kinship)
  • Geographic locations (at least one rep from each high school service area)


The committee is supported by the Chief Financial Officer and Director of Budget. The committee is also supported by the following Highline staff members:

  • Chief Academic Officer or Designee
  • Chief Talent Officer or Designee 
  • Chief Engagement & Partnership Officer or Designee
  • Director, Covid Recovery

These staff members support the committee members, but will not be able to vote on how to spend funds. 

Meeting Schedule

The committee met four times between September and December 2021. All meetings occurred between 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. via Zoom. The meeting schedule and materials are linked below.

Meetings in 2022 will be scheduled if necessary. Interpretation will be provided, as necessary, to facilitate the full participation of all committee members.

Committee Member Expectations

  • Value and respect the diversity of Highline Public Schools.
  • Work cooperatively and respectfully with committee members.
  • Actively participate in committee meetings and tasks.
