Bright Spots in Distance Learning

By Jenniffer Reinig, Executive Director of Inclusive Education and Laurie Morrison, Instructional Leadership Executive Director

There have been many opportunities and successes with Distance Learning this fall, despite the challenges. We want to take a moment to celebrate just a few of the many bright spots that have occurred due to the hard work of staff across our district.

Hazel Valley created an interactive virtual school tour using Google Classroom/Google Slides. Families picked up art supplies at White Center Heights. Families are sharing appreciation for the amazing work of teaching teams at Shorewood and across the district.

Students amaze us every day with their ability to demonstrate and share their learning through audio and video recordings, photos and artistic representations. Students at Parkside, Hilltop, Tyee, and Puget Sound Skills Center are using multiple means to show us all that they can do!

Teachers and staff at Gregory Heights and across the district are establishing relationships and getting to know their students through 1:1 connections. The Bow Lake PBIS team organized a virtual assembly to honor students demonstrating kindness. North Hill teachers inspire students to share cultural traditions. Cedarhurst staff celebrate student accomplishments through home delivery of encouraging yard signs. Cascade and other schools across the district incorporate innovative strategies into their remote teaching to provide feedback and ensure students are engaged. School teams worked tirelessly to ensure we could welcome staff and students who are part of the ILC and CBS programs.

Our community continues to support Highline. Our technology levy was successful. The RAVE Foundation is supporting Valley View with their new First Kicks Physical Literacy Program and a brand new mini pitch!

Thank you to these schools for sharing  their successes, and to all of our school staff for your continued work on behalf of our Highline students! We are Highline!
