Wondering what feedback our families have for our schools? You can now review the comments that were entered in our fall Thoughtexchange.
Families shared their thoughts on a wide range of topics. The greatest number of comments were on our educational programs--ranging from homework to curriculum to special education. There were many positive comments about our staff.
Check out the interactive report.
The most highly rated thoughts were around student behavior, safety and bullying. Highline is not alone in this. Schools across the nation report an increase of concerning incidents.
The safety and well-being of our students and staff are paramount. Meeting students' social-emotional-behavioral needs is a high priority. In addition to our existing behavior supports, we have secured a $1.5 million grant from the Kaiser Foundation to fund new staff positions and supports for student mental health.
We are also working with our HEA partners to further address these concerns.
