ELL/Literacy Endorsement

Apply by September 17

We are pleased to offer an ELL/Literacy Endorsement program to all Highline teachers through Seattle University with financial support. The program helps teachers improve instruction and assessment for English language learners and develop high-quality literacy practices. Classes will meet in a Highline school once a week on Tuesdays and synchronously online via Zoom on Thursdays from 4:30 to 8:00 p.m. If teachers are interested in enrolling, there are three steps to complete:

  1. Complete the application by September 17. (Remember that you must be signed into your Highline Gmail account to access the form.)

  2. Ask your principal or AP to complete the Principal Recommendation form by September 17.

  3. Attend the mandatory information meeting on Tuesday, September 17 from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m. to complete your enrollment and scholarship application paperwork.

The ELL Literacy flyer and program calendar provide more information on the specific courses in the endorsement program and an additional opportunity to apply these courses towards a Master's program at Seattle University.
