Our annual Employee Giving Campaign is underway, which means we have the opportunity to give back through a payroll deduction or one-time donation.
Superintendent's All-staff Messages
Dr. Susan Enfield communicates with staff periodically and those messages are archived here.
In November, the school board adopted a revised policy on Equity, Race and Identity (0010), as well as a new policy on Workplace Environment and Culture. These policies work hand-in-hand to ensure that we deliver on our commitment to disrupt institutional biases and end inequitable practices in our schools and worksites. This work is critical if we are to deliver on our Highline Promise.
As we reflect on what we are thankful for this week, I want you to know how thankful I am for each of you. Whatever your role in Highline, you are making a difference in the lives of our students.
As you know, we have been planning for a transition to a 5-period trimester schedule in our high schools. Our plan has been to start the new schedule in September 2020.
Our Rising Graduation Rate
As many of you know, we have worked over the past few years to find ways to better connect central office staff to schools. We have done this by encouraging volunteer participation at school events and assigning cabinet partners to schools.
I want to take a moment to thank you for all you have done to welcome our students and families to Highline for another school year. The start of school always brings excitement and challenges, and this year has been no exception.
Every start of a new school year is exciting, but this fall we have more big things happening than usual: boundary changes, new schools and more. It's a lot to manage!
I know that this school year went a bit longer than any of us had anticipated, but tomorrow is finally our official last day with students. We made it! I want to say thank you for all of your hard work and commitment to finishing the year strong.
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week! Whether this is your first year in teaching or your fortieth, whether you have spent your entire career in Highline or serve as a guest teacher, I want to thank you for your dedication to our students.
