We believe that an Adminstrative Internship role is an important opportunity to build leadership capacity for emerging leaders in Highline. Readiness, the depth of the experience and the mentorship match are crucial if an internship candidate is to continue on the road of future leadership.
Highlights of this process
- The process is competitive (not all applicants will necessarily be selected).
- Selected applicants will not necessarily be placed at their current schools, but the match will be made based on the context, timing, and match of the principal to the potential interns required experience, as well as relevant open positions.
To apply, certified staff must be enrolled in a college or university program and have completed a majority of course work prior to internship, or have related experiences that could substitute for being earlier in the coursework process; have at least two years certificated experience; have demonstrated excellence as teachers or specialists the past two years (documented on performance evaluations); and have demonstrated leadership role(s) in current assignment.
Same as above with the following additions: have a strong desire to work in a diverse urban/suburban environment; potential interest in a future leadership position in Highline. It is recommended that any external candidates inform me,in writing,of their interest prior to the application being submitted. Note: Interviews and placement for external candidates will be based on system capacity, after internal candidates have been considered.
Interested staff must submit their application online. Timelines may be adjusted in the best interest of the district.
The selection process will involve review of application documents and recommendations, and team interviews. Principal representation will be included as a part of those interviews. Selected applicants will be assigned to a school.
