Communications Tools

The following tools are recommended methods of communicating with colleagues and with families during the school closure. Consistency in communication is essential for families and staff.

Approved Communication Tools

Contacting Students One-on-One

We have updated guidance for contacting students one-on-one via Zoom or other district approved platforms. We recognize that requiring a parent/guardian or another student on the call could be a barrier to contact.

Digital Tool Review Committee

A committee routinely evaluates digital tools. Before using a digital tool with students or families, please review the LearnPlatform Library of Tools.

The committee exists to offer guidance around the selection of digital tools that are safe to use with students and align with Highline's strategic plan goals and foundations.

Use the LearnPlatform to request the committee to review a tool. To do this, search for the tool and LearnPlatform and then click the request option.

Staff can login using your district Google account. In Details, scroll to Resources to see HPS specific information about each tool.
