Plans for 2019-20

  • We will be implementing our newly aligned Dual Language Biliteracy model which includes a higher focus on Standards Based Inquiry learning integrated with engaging content.
  • We will be implementing a new Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) model that will engage teachers in regularly looking at student data and planning supports in collaboration with school specialists and administration.
  • We will continue our quest to improve in delivering instruction that is culturally relevant and engaging, while being rigorous and targeted enough to empower students to excel in meeting required standards.
  • We will improve our Professional Learning Communities (PLC) process to be focused on improving student achievement in Math.
  • We will continue to increase our before and after school enrichment opportunities. We will be offering a new Right At Schools before and after school program, and we will be opening our cafeteria up 30 minutes before school starts every day for students and parents to read, engage in iReady learning on laptops, and play board games.
  • Our Spanish curriculum teachers will be providing additional math support in Spanish.
  • We will increase our level of Excellence in all that we do!

Invitation to Participate

At Highline Public Schools, one of our four pillars in the district's strategic plan is parent and family engagement. In order to reach our strategic plan goals we will form partnerships with parents and families. Families and community members are encouraged to participate in school activities and in educating students in school, at home and in the community.
