Equity Symposium

Join us virtually on August 25, from 8:30 a.m. to noon for our 3rd annual Equity Symposium. 

Highline Public Schools is deeply engaged in work around equity, race and identity to better foster and support an environment in which our students, families, and staff grow, thrive, and succeed. The Equity Symposium is one opportunity for all staff to engage in dialogue and learning of racial equity.

Historic decisions and current inequitable practices advantage certain students while disadvantaging others. Highline seeks to be a leader in being an anti-racist organization focused on eliminating racism, racial and other identity inequities, and institutional bias. This intentional focus, when implemented well and with fidelity, should result in increased achievement by our students, both in school and after graduation.
