Apply Today


The Community Truancy Board (CTB) will partner with students and families to identify barriers, develop an action plan, and connect to resources that will improve school engagement, attendance and reduce the number of cases being referred to King County Juvenile/Truancy Court.

Team Support & Structure

The CTB is a standing volunteer board. The term of membership is two academic years. Members will serve from November 2020 - June 2021 (no summers). All CTB members will be trained in the importance of attendance, Highline’s attendance policy, the CTB process, racial equity and motivational interviewing.

CTB meetings are held monthly and up to two hours in length. Board volunteers may rotate meetings, depending on the total number of members. The CTB is structured to be restorative in nature and members are to help students and families problem-solve, identify barriers and develop a plan for improving attendance.

CTB Membership Qualifications and Expectations 

Highline Public Schools seeks community volunteers who have a vested interest in Highline Public School students’ success and are familiar with the community needs and resources. We also seek volunteers that represent and reflect the diversity of the Highline Public Schools community including, ethnicity, language, race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status.

Board Volunteer Expectations

  • Attend CTB training and board meetings (exceptions will be made for urgent/unforeseen conflicts).
  • Be familiar (or willing to learn about) with Highline’s attendance policies, causes to chronic absenteeism, and interventions.
  • Work cooperatively and respectfully with students, families, staff and board members.
