Leading the Way

We are committed to continual growth and believe our staffing is the strongest lever for school improvement. We are committed to curating a racially, culturally, and linguistically diverse workforce that can deliver on Our Promise in support of student-defined success.

This hiring season Highline is posting a single Leadership Cadre posting for interested candidates to apply. Our hiring process is both technical and adaptive and has been designed through an anti-racist lens that aims to center human dignity, candidate agency, transparency, and a collectivist systems approach.

Candidates who are interested in school-based and/or central office leadership positions are encouraged to apply to our Leadership Cadre posting. In support of candidate agency and our strategic staffing practices, candidates are asked about experiences and skill sets that will inform our strategic staffing alignment between our candidate pool and current vacancies throughout the hiring season.

The Leadership Cadre posting is live and accepting applications. Once an application has been started, candidates in the pool will receive a notification when vacant positions are identified. Each position will post with a strategic staffing summary describing the unique context of each vacancy within our system. Those that meet minimum qualifications move forward through a multi-stage selection process; following centralized screening, top competitive candidates will move forward to site-based screening based upon their experience and alignment with the school or department’s strategic staffing profile. 


Hiring Teams

We are committed to assembling hiring teams that reflect the diversity of our schools and community. All hiring team members engage in training on implicit bias in the hiring process (Board Policy 5002). Human Resources is committed to ensuring equitable hiring practices that center human dignity and result in a workforce curated for the needs of our students. We will communicate with applicants throughout the hiring season. 

Per Board Policy 5025, Superintendent and School Board has final authority on the selection and may appoint staff into positions.
