: Varies - Temporary position.

SUMMARY: The High School Intern will be assigned to a department within the Educational Resources and

Administration Center (ERAC) of Highline Public Schools or to a specified school for the purpose of attaining work-

place learning experience and career readiness. The intern will have, a start and end date, learning objectives and

Student interns will be paid minimum wage and understand this is a temporary position not to exceed the number

CONTEXT AND MISSION: Highline Public Schools serves approximately 19,000 students in the communities of

Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, SeaTac, Boulevard Park and White Center Heights in Washington State.

Starting in the fall of 2012, the Highline community came together to develop a four-year strategic plan outlining

the community’s bold goals and big dreams for its children. The plan’s promise is that every student in Highline

Public Schools is known by name, strength, and need, and graduates prepared for college, career, and citizenship.

One of the District’s 2017 Goals is that at least 19 out of 20 students entering Grade 9 in 2013 will graduate
prepared to choose their future. This can be achieved if every student has work place experiences that help
shape their career plans, and ERAC is proud to serve as a model by hosting Career Exploration Interns.

The collective commitment embodied in the plan is grounded in the community’s deep belief that Highline
students are capable of reaching the plan’s ambitious goals and is driven by students’ aspirations for their future.

The instructional vision articulated in the plan is organized around Four Pillars that guide professional and
organizational practices:

- Equitable access to rigorous, standards-based instruction. High-quality instruction for all students.

- Results-focused professional learning and collaboration. Investing in our people so they continuously fine-tune
their craft and grow in their profession.

- Strong partnerships with families and community. Schools can’t do it alone. We are better when students,
families, community and educators work hand-in-hand.

- A culturally responsive organization. Our diversity is a strength and an asset. We are committed to equity,
excellent service for all, and continuous improvement.
